FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Ca. - SureFire's E2D Defender® was selected as the 2008 American Rifleman Accessory of the Year during the sixth annual NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards.

The Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the shooting sports and are determined by an eight-member committee consisting of editors, art staff and veteran publications personnel with more than a century of collective experience in the firearm industry.

"It is an honor to be acknowledged by a group that is as respected in the industry as the staff of the NRA Publications for our E2D, a product we feel is vital in helping to keep law enforcement, military personnel, and the general consumer safe," said Matthew Hemenez, director of product management at SureFire LLC.

To qualify for consideration for the Golden Bullseye Award, SureFire's E2D had to prove its reliability during field testing to a staff member of NRA Publications by meeting or exceeding the evaluator's expectations. In addition, it had to show that it's innovative in design and styled in a manner befitting the firearms industry and its enthusiasts. Finally, the E2D had to be readily perceived as a value to the purchaser and widely available to consumers in 2007.

SureFire was presented with this Golden Bullseye Award during a special ceremony breakfast at the 2008 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky on May 16, 2008. The E2D will be featured in editorial overviews in issues of NRA Publications American Rifleman, American Hunter, Women's Outlook and Shooting Illustrated.
