Designed to be an easy, user-friendly target-shooting activity any range can offer its customers starting in August, the #RangeChallenge Summer Shots Series focuses on mentorship while being entertaining for all shooters from those just getting started to seasoned competitors.

“Now this is a package ready for all sorts of fun range time!” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail & Range Business Development. “We’re grateful to Primary Arms for both generous donations and are excited to see who the winners will be during National Shooting Sports Month.”

“Primary Arms is proud to partner with NSSF during National Shooting Sports Month to help promote the shooting sports,” said Dina Sanders, Primary Arms Brand Marketing Manager. “We want to encourage everyone to introduce family and friends to the sport and educate newcomers on becoming new gun owners.”

National Shooting Sports Month, a celebration of the shooting sports and the firearm industry, takes place throughout the month of August. Firearms ranges and FFL retailers across the country have listed hundreds of events, classes, shoots and promotions on the calendar at ShootingSportsMonth.org. That calendar interacts directly with NSSF’s LetsGoShooting.org website, which consumers use to discover the August events taking place in their communities. Ranges and retailers are encouraged to continue adding their August activities to the calendar here, and when they do, NSSF will send those businesses a promotional package that includes shirts and hats.

NSSF’s #RangeChallenge Series’ Summer Shots season runs from Aug 1 to Sept 22. For questions about becoming a #RangeChallenge host range or information about holding other events in August, please contact Ann Gamauf, NSSF Retail & Range Business Development Coordinator, at [email protected] or 203-426-1320 ext. 247.

Additional Gearbox Giveaway and #RangeChallenge sponsorships are available. For more information on how these sponsorships and your involvement will benefit both your business and the firearm industry at large, contact Zach Snow at [email protected] or 203-426-1320 ext. 224.
