August is National Shooting Sports Month

The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) established this celebration to encourage you to spend trigger time at your local shooting range and share your passion for the shooting sports with others. Some 24 million Americans have a great interest in learning about recreational shooting, according to NSSF, making National Shooting Sports Month the perfect time to bring someone new to the range. Here’s just a few of many reasons why you should go shooting:

Bring someone new — There’s nothing quite like seeing the joy on someone’s face after they’ve taken their first shots.

Rediscover shooting — Haven’t shot in a while? Dust off your shooting gear and head to the range, preferably with a friend.

Practice Firearm Safety — The shooting sports are safe. Responsible gun owners safely handle their firearms and securely store when not in use when on the firing line, transporting them in vehicles and at home.

Celebrate Freedom and Tradition — In addition to passing on the great tradition of target shooting, you can educate others about the unique American freedoms that make participating possible.

Share It! — #LetsGoShootingTM is the theme of National Shooting Sports Month. Share the hashtag and your experiences on your favorite social media networks, and remind others to give target shooting a try. Stay connected by following Let’s Go Shooting on Facebook,Instagram and Twitter.
