Montana Firearms Institute aims to boost local industry

Chris Hyatt knows exactly why he got involved in creating the Montana Firearms Institute. It’s as much about helping future generations get good jobs here as it is about supporting the firearms industry, he said.

“There are times when you give back and times when you build,” Hyatt said. “We have to do something sustainable if we want our children to be able to come back here.”

The Montana Firearms Institute was launched in 2011 as a nonprofit support organization to help existing firearms businesses and establish a training program to bring educational institutions and firearms-related manufacturers together.

The institute also aims to recruit firearms manufacturers to Montana and foster a friendly business climate for the industry. Its members also champion the Second Amendment.

“We’re here to assist businesses that are already here. That’s key,” Hyatt said. “We’ll help create a stronger environment for the industry within our state.”

In the Flathead Valley, the Montana Firearms Institute has two strong local partners: Flathead Valley Community College and Montana West Economic Development Corp.
