“That’s four — count ’em four! — firearms in this Gearbox Giveaway,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail & Range Business Development. “And that’s not to mention a collection of terrific accessories. Hats off to Mossberg for this outstanding donation to our National Shooting Sports Month efforts.”

“We are excited to see thousands of shooters across the country this August head to the range — preferably with friends, family and new people they can introduce to the shooting sports,” said Richard Kirk, Mossberg’s Senior Director of Marketing. “If our Gearbox provides the incentive to do just that, then we know we’ve helped ensure our firearms traditions will be preserved for future generations.”

National Shooting Sports Month, a celebration of the shooting sports, takes place throughout the month of August. Firearms ranges and FFL retailers across the country have listed hundreds of special events on the calendar at ShootingSportsMonth.org, which interacts directly with NSSF’s LetsGoShooting.org website, where the site’s users can then discover all the events near them.

Additional Gearbox Giveaway sponsorships are available. For more information discover how your involvement in National Shooting Sports Month benefits both your business and the firearms industry at large, contact Zach Snow at zsnow@nssf.org or 203-426-1320 ext. 224.
