Sportsman's Insurance Agency was founded in 1991 to focus on insurance coverage for gun clubs, gun owners, and other businesses in the firearms industry. It was founded by Hollis Boss as a successor to the Hollis Boss Agency where he provided a full spectrum of business related insurance services, including coverage for gun clubs. In addition to providing insurance services to firearms related businesses for more than 50 years, Hollis is a past President of the National Skeet Shooting Association, a member of the NSSA Hall of Fame, and a past Chairman of the U.S. Shooting Team Foundation.
In addition to Hollis, Sportsman's is staffed by experienced, knowledgeable insurance professionals who cater to the insurance needs of the shooting industry.
