MGM Targets Signs as Official Sponsor of
Rimfire Challenge World Championships

NEWTOWN, Conn.—The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) is pleased to announce that MGM Targets has signed on to be the official target provider of the Rimfire Challenge World Championships. Based in Caldwell, Idaho, MGM Targets is a leading manufacturer of steel targets for the shooting sports.

“As a match program designed to encourage new shooters to try the competitive shooting for the first time, it’s important that the match’s sponsors are relevant not just to the competition, but also to other shooting sports so many of these novices will go on to try,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Manager, Shooting Promotions. “We think MGM Targets fits this bill perfectly and we are very pleased to have them join us as the official target provider for the upcoming World Championships.”

“We are pleased and proud to be involved with the NSSF, whose objectives align so closely with our own, especially as they relate to promoting and preserving the shooting sports and the Second Amendment,” said Kevin Murphy, Marketing Manager at MGM Targets. “To provide targets for the upcoming World Championships is an additional privilege.”

The NSSF Rimfire Challenge World Championship will be held October 9-11 at the Old Fort Gun Club in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Slots are filling quickly, and competitors are urged to complete their registration for the event as soon as possible. Online registration can be accessed here.

Additional opportunities are available for Rimfire Challenge sponsor support, including the upcoming World Championship.
