A gun range in Texas seized the moment to launch a sale following the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict last week.

Conroe-based Saddle River Range on Saturday notified customers via text message of their “Not Guilty” sale, commemorating the exonerated 18-year-old who was acquitted on murder charges, and the right to self-defense.

An ad for the sale featured a picture of Kyle carrying his AR-15 on that fateful night, with upper and lower text reading, “Not Guilty Sale Now Until Thanksgiving!!!”

According to a screenshot of the text obtained by KPRC, the “Pre-Black Friday” sale includes: “Firearms, optics, bags, gun parts, hunting and archery products and more.”

The text unfortunately did not mention what percentage discount would be offered, or if range services would also be discounted.

Gun range owner Thomas Bolsch explained the sale was not a celebration that people were killed.

“We celebrated the acquittal from a Second Amendment standpoint and a right to defend yourself point,” he said, adding, “We did not celebrate, and we do not celebrate the loss of life.”

At least one customer interviewed was confused why people would be offended by the image, or the sale.

Media outlets, however, scoured through the company’s Instagram page and found a black customer who was offended, despite the Rittenhouse trial having nothing to do with race whatsoever.

“I really respect this store,” the social media user quoted by two different news outlets said. “I purchased my first gun from you all. But as a young Black male, also a young business owner, this does not give me confidence in the justice system, and I don’t like the fact you all are capitalizing on a situation that is still so fresh.”

A request for comment from Saddle River Range was not immediately returned.

On a somewhat related note, rock legend Ted Nugent announced last week he’d like to gift Rittenhouse a lifetime supply of ammo.

“I’m going to get a hold of Kyle Rittenhouse and I’m going to provide him a lifetime supply of ammunition and I’d like to begin the Kyle Rittenhouse Tactical Masterclass because as a young man, boy did he do good. He knew that weapon. He was a samurai as a teenager that under those unbelievable, traumatic and physically assaultive conditions, he did his job,” Uncle Ted told the “Rock of Nations” podcast.
