“As we grew-up, our parents instilled into Kathy and I that ‘To those who have been given much, much is expected,'” said Peter Bocker, President of PKAT Arms, Newport’s Gun Shop. In other words, “it is better to give than to receive.” Although PKAT Arms is only a small, family run business, we believe that we need to give back to our community. That being said, below are the different organizations that PKAT Arms support. Please click on to the links to these charities, and if you feel as strongly about them as Kathy and I, please feel free to give as well.
