IT’S AN AMERICAN ICON, AS THE NATION’S OLDEST
GUN MANUFACTURER. THIS HISTORIC COMPANY FOUNDED BACK IN 1816
ENJOYS A RICH AND LASTING LEGACY. TODAY, THE LEGACY LIVES ON IN PRODUCTS LIKE
THE MODEL 870 SHOT GUN AND THE MODEL 700 RIFLE.
AS WELL AS NEW PRODUCTS THAT ARE LEADING REMINGTON TOWARDS
IT’S 200TH ANNIVERSARY. SO HOW DOES A COMPANY STAY ON TOP OF TRENDS
FOR 200 YEARS? BY LISTENING TO CONSUMERS, LIKE YOU.
HERE TO DISCUSS WHAT REMINGTON ARMS COMPANY IS DOING
TO MAKE STATE OF THE ART PERSONAL PROTECTION AVAILABLE FOR WOMEN IS
HALEY HEATH, CO-HOST OF THE OUTFITTERS AND YETI’S ULTIMATE HUNT ON
CABLE TV’S THE SPORTSMAN CHANNEL. GOOD MORNING!
HEY, GOOD MORNING. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME.
NO, THANKS FOR BEING HERE. LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU, HALEY
BECAUSE YOU REALLY HAVE QUITE A BIO. TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND
AND HOW YOU BECAME A SPOKESPERSON FOR THIS ICONIC COMPANY.
WELL, YOU KNOW IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT
GRANDPARENTS SHOT REMINGTON…MY PARENTS SHOT REMINGTON…
NOW OF COURSE, I HAD TO SHOOT REMINGTON AND, YOU KNOW..
GETTING INTO THE HUNTING INDUSTRY, IT WAS KIND OF A NATURAL FIT.
THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A WOMAN THAT COULD GO OUT THERE AND HELP OTHER WOMEN
AND FAMILIES GET INVOLVED IN THE OUTDOORS AND IT JUST WAS A PERFECT FIT.
AND LET ME TELL YOU, WOMEN TODAY, THEY ARE LEARNING MORE AND MORE
HOW TO PROTECT THEMSELVES BY TAKING GUN INSTRUCTION CLASSES.
WHY IS THIS INCREASE HAPPENING? YOU KNOW I REALLY FEEL LIKE IT’S ONE OF THOSE
THINGS- PEOPE ARE WANTING TO LIVE READY. WOMEN ARE,
YOU KNOW, THEY’RE WAITING UNTIL LATER IN LIFE BEFORE THEY GET MARRIED
AND HAVE CHILDREN AND SO THEY’RE PUTTING THEIR CAREERS FIRST AND THERE
ARE A LOT OF SINGLE WOMEN OUT THERE. A LOT OF SINGLE MOMS…
YEAH. OUT THERE, UMMM, AND SO THEY REALLY WANT TO
MAKE SURE THEY CAN PROTECT THEMSELVES. AND PROTECT THEIR LOVED
ONES AS WELL. NOW, YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED RIFLE HUNTER..
YES. YET, HAND GUNS ARE NEW FOR YOU.
HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN? YOU KNOW I THINK IT’S BECAUSE I GREW UP AROUND
RIFLES AND SHOT GUNS. AND SO, I WAS KIND OF INTIMIDATED BY THIS
LITTLE_ YOU’RE KIDDING!
NO, NOT AT ALL! I WAS INTIMIDATED BY THE HAND GUN.
AND WHEN REMINGTON CAME OUT WITH THIS R51, IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS
WHERE I WAS LIKE- THIS ONE FITS ME AND I’M NOT SCARED BY IT.
I’M NOT AFRAID OF…IT’S NOT GOING TO KICK…IT’S NOT GOING TO HAVE ALL
THESE THINGS THAT I WAS AFRAID OF AND THAT I THINK MOST WOMEN ARE AFRAID OF.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE R51 BECAUSE WHEN I MET MY HUSBAND,
HE TOOK ME TO SOME CLASSES AND I GOT MY GUN PERMIT.
AND ONE OF THE THINGS I HAD A PROBLEM WITH WAS FINDING A GOOD HAND GUN FOR ME.
R51, TELL ME WHY IT’S UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT. I WANT TO SHOW IT TO YOU.
OKAY. UMMM, IT’S GOT A LOW BORE AXIS WHICH IS, UMMM,
MAKES IT WHERE THE KICK ISN’T AS BAD. NOW WHAT YOU ALWAYS WANT TO DO IS, YOU ALWAYS
WANT TO OPEN AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU’RE CHECKING TO MAKE
SURE IT’S NOT LOADED. THAT’S WHAT I JUST DID.
I’M GOING TO HAND IT OVER THERE TO YOU AND LET YOU
ACTUALLY HAVE A TURN IT. YOU’LL SEE HOW IT FEELS IN YOUR HAND
AND MAKE SURE IT’S VERY COMFORTABLE. LIGHT WEIGHT.
UH HUMM. IT DEFINITELY IS AND THERE’S NOT GOING TO MUCH KICK,
AND YOU REALLY CAN FEEL COMFORTABLE. AND IT’S ONE THAT FIT INSIDE YOUR PURSE.
AND IT’S NOT TOO SMALL TO WHERE YOU CAN’T FIND IT
AND YOU’RE DIGGING AROUND IN THERE, BUT IT’S ALSO ONE OF THOSE THINGS
THAT YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR HOUSE AND IN YOUR GUN SAFE.
NOW I DID BRING THE PURSE OKAY…
TO SHOW YOU THAT THIS IS ACTUALLY A CONCEAL AND CARRY PURSE,
SO WHEN THIS GOES IN HERE.. GO AHEAD AND SHOW ME.
OKAY. UMMM, I’LL PUT THIS RIGHT BACK IN HERE.
IT CAN GO IN HERE AND IT VELCROS TO THE SIDE, THE HOLSTER DOES.
OH, THAT’S PERFECT. AND THEN I ZIP IT UP AND YOU NEVER KNOW ANY
DIFFERENT. AND THERE YOU GO..
YOU’RE READY TO GO, THERE YOU GO. NOW THAT ALSO HAS A, AN INTERESTING OPTION
THAT I HONESTLY HAVE NEVER SEEN…TELL ME ABOUT IT.
IT’S SOMETHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH LASER. NOW THERE IS A LASER OPTION THAT’S CALLED
CRIMSON TRACE LASER- OKAY.
AND IT CAN BE ADDED ON TO HERE AS JUST AN EXTRA ACCESSORY.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT FEATURE. AND YOU CAN TURN ON THAT LASER AND YOU CAN
BE RIGHT ON YOUR TARGET. AND IT ALSO HELPS WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE INEXPERIENCED
UMMM AND NOT GO OUT EVERY WEEKEND AND SHOOT OR
EVERYDAY AND SHOOT. IT KIND OF HELPS.
YEAH, IT HELPS CENTER THEM, KNOW WHERE THEY’RE AIMING,
WHERE THEY’RE SHOOTING. NOW FOR WOMEN TODAY, AND I HEAR THIS FROM
MY FRIENDS, THEY TELL ME, I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU TOOK CLASSES
WITH JOSES AND I SAY, YEAH, WELL I DID AND A LOT OF THEM
HAVE CHILDREN AND YOU KNOW…THEY ARE FEARFUL OF A HAND GUN.
THE R51 UMMM…WHAT WOULD YOU SAY FOR SOMEONE WHO IS
INTIMIDATED BY THE GUN? YOU KNOW, I HAVE TWO CHILDREN MYSELF AND SO
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO ME TO MAKE SURE THAT WE KNOW GUN SAFETY AROUND
OUR HOUSE. BUT I THINK TO BE ABLE TO READ SOMETHING LIKE,
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GUN SAFETY, BEFORE YOU EVER THINK ABOUT EVEN PICKING UP
A GUN, OR BRINGING ONE INTO YOUR HOME,
UMMM, YOU CAN GO TO REMINGTON.COM
AND LOOK AT ALL OF THOSE…READ THEM ALL, GET FAMILIAR WITH THEM.
READ THEM TO YOUR CHILDREN. OKAY.
UMMM, AND THEN WHEN YOU GO TO A RANGE; SEE IF THEY HAVE A FEMALE INSTRUCTOR.
I THINK THAT’S A GOOD THING AS WELL. I HAVE ONE.
REALLY? IT HELPS.
I’VE HAD ONE TOO. IT REALLY DOES; IT HELPS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
IF YOU ALREADY SCARED OF THE KICK OR THE SOUND AND YOU KNOW
THE FEEL OF IT.. UMMM, YOU KNOW, HAVING A FEMALE THERE THAT
CAN SHOW YOU IT’S OKAY. YOU KNOW, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GET HURT IF
YOU FOLLOW THESE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GUN SAFETY AND YOU LISTEN
TO WHAT I’M TEACHING YOU AND SO, THAT REALLY DOES HELP TO HAVE THAT.
AND OF COURSE, BEING AT HOME AND MAKING SURE THAT YOUR GUNS
ARE LOCKED AWAY AND IN A SAFE PLACE. AND LIKE EVERYTHING, IF IT’S NOT FOR YOU;
IT’S NOT FOR YOU AND THAT’S IT.
EXACTLY. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.
I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. AND TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT TODAY’S SEGMENT
INCLUDING THE R51 AND GUN SAFETY IN GENERAL, AND AS ALWAYS

  1. This is not about public safety, but the opposite: an all-out effort to sell as many guns as possible, to saturating the entire market (the entire population) with guns.  — What is next: a school lunch kit with a six-pack of pistols to hand out to your little school mates?
    Insane greed, and moral callousness.
      I have now seen gun magazines aimed at women, at two different supermarket chains.
