Remington Outdoor Company Renews as Presenting Sponsor of National Shooting Sports Month
NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF® ), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that Remington Outdoor Company has renewed its sponsorship of 2018’s National Shooting Sports Month as the Presenting Sponsor. Headquartered in Madison, North Carolina, Remington is a leading American manufacturer of rifles, shotguns, handguns, related accessories and ammunition.
“It’s truly wonderful to have Remington once again as the Presenting Sponsor for National Shooting Sports Month,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Shooting Range Services. “We sincerely appreciate this commitment to the shooting sports and are looking forward to having hundreds of new shooters make a connection with this iconic brand.”
“We are honored to continue our partnership with the NSSF by sponsoring the National Shooting Sports Month,” states Mark Sidelinger, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Remington. “Providing new shooters the opportunity to become a part of a time-honored, American tradition through shooting events such as this has been part of the Remington heritage, and we look forward to continuing this well into the future.”
Taking place throughout the month of August, NSSF’s National Shooting Sports Month is designed to celebrate the excitement of the target shooting sports and highlight the lifetime of enjoyment this pastime provides. At the same time, it reminds the public that shooting is a safe activity enjoyed by millions of Americans, cultivates increased shooting sports participation through hundreds of fun events and activities at ranges and retail stores nationwide and fosters mentorship of new shooters by those already active in target shooting.
Hundreds of firearms ranges and retailers across the country have thrown their support behind National Shooting Sports Month by posting a wide-ranging roster of matches, tournaments, charity events, instructional classes, sales, family days at the range and other promotions to the Calendar of Events at ShootingSportsMonth.org, which will interact with the newly launched LetsGoShooting.org website, a comprehensive consumer resource for all things shooting sports and firearms safety.
NSSF encourages all its industry members to become a partner in National Shooting Sports Month and help raise awareness around this monthlong celebratory campaign.
