B.E. Meyers Releases Statement on Contract Employee Shooting Incident

The Register Guard, a Eugene, Oregon newspaper, recently posted an article about a shooting involving Chuck Pressburg, a US Army combat veteran and brand ambassador for military electro-optical company B.E. Meyers. The February 13 post shared very basic information gathered from the Eugene police along with what appears to be a mugshot of Pressburg. In part, it reads:

Eugene police said the incident happened shortly after midnight on Sunday morning in the 700 block of Rossmore Street, when Charles Michael Pressburg, 44, retrieved a handgun he had been carrying and fired a round, injuring someone whose age and gender were not released.

While the report mentions alcohol, it makes no mention of a fight, leaving the possibility the shooting was the result of a negligent discharge.

Today, B.E. Meyers released a statement in support of Pressburg:

Recently, a news release came to light identifying one of our contracted employees and brand ambassador, Mr. Charles “Chuck” Pressburg of Presscheck Consulting, in an unfortunate firearms incident. The media coverage of this incident is vague and allows for misperception. In addition to this limited reporting by the press, malicious speculation online is fueling and in some way exacerbating many inaccuracies in the story.

This incident is by no means indicative of the performance or standards that we know Chuck to uphold, and in no way impacts his credentials as a Subject Matter Expert on the topic of low-light operations as well as night vision and laser combat employment. He represents our brand, and we support him as strongly today as we ever have.

While this was an obviously unfortunate incident involving our brand ambassador, the details of the situation will come out at a time and in a method that are legally appropriate. While it would not be appropriate for our brand ambassador to make a statement himself at this time, B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. and industry entities cited in this message stand in his support to speak for him.

I encourage the community to take a pause, know that all the details cannot be currently released, and to question the narrative provided to them by the Oregon media that has spread to the national press level. Stop breaking out the Jump-to-Conclusions Mat, stop trying to fill in the blanks erroneously, and start letting the facts develop. Let the legal system work, and come to your own conclusions in due time.

I personally stand with Chuck.
B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. stands with Chuck.
Those of character in this industry stand with Chuck.

We are ALL, all in for Chuck.

#ALLINFORCHUCK

Sincerely,

Matthew Meyers
President and Co-Owner
