#RangeChallenge Returns for NSSF’s National Shooting Sports Month

Shoot your #RangeChallengeSM target and enter to win great prizes!

August #RangeChallengeWASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, encourages target shooters across America, of all skill levels, to take part in the #RangeChallenge—one of the fun activities to enjoy while celebrating National Shooting Sports Month®, held during August.

For the seventh year, National Shooting Sports Month, a program of NSSF, will celebrate the sport of target shooting by reminding firearm owners to enjoy a summer day at the range—preferably with friends or family members—or to visit firearm retailers across the country to check out their special National Shooting Sports Month sales and events.

The #RangeChallenge has struck a chord with America’s target shooters in recent years, providing shooters of all levels with a fun and gently competitive game, if you want it to be, that can also lead to winning great prizes.

The #RangeChallenge works like this:

Participants can pick up a free #RangeChallenge target at a National Shooting Sports Month-participating range or download a target at the #RangeChallenge website, head out onto the range during August, review the game instructions and shoot their target. The next step is to enter to win great prizes by posting a photo on the #RangeChallenge website or a photo on Instagram using the hashtag #RangeChallenge. You’ll be entered to win one of 10 gift cards valued at $500.00 each. Sharing your post leads to more fun and more participants, and the sooner you participate the better your odds are of winning a $500 gift card! See the #RangeChallenge website for full details and rules.

Shooting facilities are encouraged to sign up to receive a package of official #RangeChallenge targets. When completing the sign-up form, click on the “Add an Event or Promotion” button and select #RangeChallenge Target Games under “Event Type” or contact Zach Snow for further assistance at [email protected] / 203-426-1320 ext. 224. NSSF will also send partnering ranges a promotional package of National Shooting Sports Month items while supplies last. An updated #RangeChallenge Toolkit will help ranges with their marketing and communications efforts tied to this entertaining activity. Companies and organizations should also use the toolkit resources to promote participation in this activity throughout August.

Whether target shooters pick up a #RangeChallenge target at their local range or download one from the website, it’s easy to participate in the fun and enjoy National Shooting Sports Month on the range. And don’t forget to enjoy it with a friend.

Check out the #RangeChallenge!
