August is National Shooting Sports month according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). While this is year is certainly unconventional for obvious reasons, gun owners can still participate.
For 2020, the NSSF has come up with a “#RangeChallenge” that is going to be a lot of fun for gun enthusiasts to participate in.
Are you ready to win some great prizes? Here’s how to take part in the #RangeChallenge Series this month.
How the #RangeChallenge Works
The way that the contest works is by using special targets that certain shooting ranges that have partnered with the NSSF will offer. The first series is called “Summer Shots”, and runs through September 20, 2020. To get started visit the their website to find out which specific shooting ranges in your area are offering the contest.
Once you find out the range to go to, there will be special instructions on the courses of fire and the targets they will be using. Once you go to the range and shoot, you can post your results on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #RangeChallenge.
You can win weekly gear and prizes sent out by the NSSF. Some of the ranges themselves will also be offering prizes packages for the winners. This may include gear like hats, shirts, stickers, and challenge coins. You can also win free range time or training classes.
All in all, it’s a worthwhile contest to be a part of to support the history and love of target shooting.
Share the Fun and Games With Your Friends
It’s easy to share the fun and games with your friends by encouraging them to participate in the challenges with you. Ideally, you want to get experienced shooters and newbies involved as well. It’s all in the name of making shooting sports recognized as the great pastime and hobby we all know that it is.
The whole goal of National Shooting Sports month is for every experienced shooter to sign up one inexperienced shooter. It’s called the “+One Movement.” You can share it with the hashtag, #PlusOneMovement.
So, by using the #RangeChallenge contest to sign up your friends, you will easily make the goal of National Shooting Sports month a reality. A strong future for shooting sports is something we all need to be concerned about in supporting the Second Amendment.
More Contests Coming in the Fall
This isn’t only going to be going on in the summer either. More contests will be starting up in the fall during October and November with new targets and challenges to participate in at each shooting range.
