W. Laird Hamberlin, longtime member of Safari Club International, has been named SCI's Chief Executive Officer, effective April 1. He succeeds Richard M. Parsons, who will serve as his deputy during a transition period.

A businessman known for helping big companies grow and prosper, Hamberlin has been a member of SCI for more than 30 years and has served in numerous volunteer positions at the chapter, regional and international levels. He served on three separate Executive Committees, most recently as a Vice President from 2013 through 2015.

"We are in an unprecedented period of attacks on hunting, particularly international hunting that has been SCI's brand for many years," Hamberlin said. "Hunting here in the U.S. is also under attack and is a right that we will help to preserve. SCI has always been the leading organization defending the rights of all hunters around the world through conservation, science-based data and sustainability. The increased challenges of today call for bold moves to make sure that SCI is properly structured and funded to take that leadership role to the next level. I'm extremely excited about our future in leading the way."

"SCI is happy to welcome Laird aboard as our new CEO," said SCI President Paul Babaz. "He has been a valuable part of the volunteer leadership team and now will be able to use his extraordinary talents to help guide and grow the business side of the organization in order to protect and support the right to hunt."

More of the same, or someone who knows what needs to be fixed? Time will tell....

I would say that timing is good though. SCI has 11 months to stop some of the bleeding before their next convention, if they move quickly.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
