“We are humbled by the opportunity to be a part of the inaugural National Shooting Sports Month,” said Jordan Davis, Remington Outdoor Company Vice President of Marketing. “For more than 200 years Remington has been synonymous with the shooting sports and its sporting traditions. We couldn’t imagine a better opportunity to continuing our support of the shooting, sporting and Second Amendment traditions than to partner with the NSSF in bringing the National Shooting Sports Month to fruition.”
Taking place throughout the entire month of August, NSSF’s first annual National Shooting Sports Month was created to celebrate the passion we all have for target shooting and a pastime that provides a lifetime of enjoyment that can be shared with families and friends. At the same time, it reminds the public that shooting is a safe, fun activity enjoyed by millions of Americans, and provides an excellent opportunity for increased shooting sports participation through fun events and activities held at ranges and retail stores across the country.
Firearms ranges across the country are taking part with special events and promotions, and shooters will find their local firearms retailers lined up to share in the excitement as well, with sales, instruction and other efforts that keeps excitement high for the month-long event. NSSF recently introduced its new website, www.ShootingSportsMonth.org, as the go-to resource for industry manufacturers, ranges and retailers to spread the word, and where consumers will find the participating stores and shooting facilities in their areas, a free library of shooting tip and firearms safety videos, the latest firearms industry news and more. Shooters are invited to share their participation during the month on social media using the hashtag #LetsGoShooting.
“We are truly excited to launch National Shooting Sports Month,” said Dolnack. “Starting now, this is going to be the summer month everyone looks forward to, for years to come.”
