These heavy duty fire pits by Salute originated as custom holiday gifts within our Salute Targets family. When others saw them, they had to have them. Now we are offering them to our loyal customers. They are extremely rugged and will last a lifetime! Yes, you can leave them outdoors all winter. Note that they are built by the same folks who build a wide variety of steel reactive targets from .22 up to .50 caliber impact capability, and built with the same rugged material. You will not be disappointed! Various themes are available. Inquire (503) 439-3006 about a custom design.
