August is the 2019 National Shooting Sports Month.

For the entire month of August, 2019

Why National Shooting Sports Month? -- Firearms owners deserve a dedicated time that draws positive attention to their sports and its many benefits. NSSM serves as a reminder to make time to enjoy a day at the range whether by themselves or with a friend or family member.

What can we all do? -- All of the team here at Winchester Repeating Arms are truly excited to see NSSF have another successful National Shooting Sports Month. It is the perfect incentive for our regular customers to do something extra in August to introduce someone new to the sport they love and an encouragement for those who haven’t been out to the range lately to grab their Winchesters and get in some practice. You can expect that Winchester Repeating Arms and our dealers will be offering special incentives in August to make getting into a new Winchester rifle or shotgun easier than ever. 

We support the National Shooting Sports Month and invite you to join us.

Winchester Repeating Arms has long been proud to support the shooting sports. And this year we are especially proud to again support the annual National Shooting Sports Month. 

The National Shooting Sports Month was created to encourage participation in our many shooting sports genres and emphasize firearms safety, this nationwide celebration will take place throughout the month of August.

August is National Shooting Sports Month -- People can go target shooting year-round, but the month of August is National Shooting Sports Month—a time for the community of firearms owners to celebrate and enjoy the shooting sports with friends, family and newcomers they want to introduce to these lifetime activities.

In 2017, the National Shooting Sports Foundation established August as National Shooting Sports Month—a declaration that received widespread approval. This national celebration of target shooting sports attracted thousands of participants to local shooting ranges. Ranges and firearms retailers listed thousands of special events and other segments of the firearms industry-supported National Shooting Sports Month (NSSM®) as sponsors, partners and through donations of sweepstakes prizes.


Plan to participate.

“This year we expect the National Shooting Sports Month to again be a tremendous success, thanks to hundreds of manufacturers, ranges and retailers across the country signing up to take part and getting the word out to their customers and communities,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Shooting Range Services. “We’re thrilled to have Winchester Repeating Arms join in the celebration on our second year of celebration.”
