In Memory of Mikhail Tomofeyevich Kalashnikov

LAS VEGAS, NV – By the request of and in cooperation with Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov’s daughter, Ms. Elena Mikhailovna Kalashnikova and Kalashnikov Foundation, Arsenal, Inc. will be honoring M. T. Kalashnikov’s memory at our booth (# 11218) at the SHOT Show 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. As we all learned with great sadness, Mr. Kalashnikov passed away on December 23, 2013, at the age of 94. There is no doubt that he was one of the most influential and pivotal firearm designers of our time. An NRA Life Member and strong supporter of individual rights to own and bear arms, Mr. Kalashnikov’s contributions to the firearms world and to our industry are enormous.

Please visit Booth 11218 to join Arsenal Inc. in remembering Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov as an individual of exceptional character and ingenious designer and engineer. A memorial guest book will be available for your condolences and thoughts to the Kalashnikov family. This book will be sent to Ms. Kalashnikova and the Kalashnikov Foundation as a token of respect and appreciation from the United States, to become part of the memorial collection for Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov.
