|NEWTOWN, Conn. – The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms industry, announced recently that Gold Coast Armory donated $20,000 in support of the Rimfire Challenge Program.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Gold Coast continue its tremendous support of the Rimfire Challenge program,” said Tisma Juett, NSSF manager, First Shots Program. “This level of commitment clearly demonstrates that this shooting program has proven its worth to the firearms industry and the community of recreational shooters across the country.”
Headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, Gold Coast Armory is a wholesale ammunition distributor. The company ensures match directors have a reliable supply and selection of .22 Long Rifle ammunition to sell to local competitors at reasonable prices.
“Gold Coast Armory is proud to support the NSSF Rimfire Challenge,” said Scott Blick, the company’s managing partner. “Gold Coast Armory takes great pride in helping ranges acquire the ammunition they need for the competitions so we can all grow the popularity of shooting sports from beginner to professional.”
Now in its third year, the Rimfire Challenge provides a way for novice shooters to experience their first competitions via a family-friendly and highly supportive atmosphere. Matches utilize a two-gun format of .22 LR handguns and rifles, making the Rimfire Challenge an economical sport for new competitors. The competitions take place throughout the year and are open to all ages and skill levels, with participation by recreational shooters new to competition specifically encouraged.
The 2016 Rimfire Challenge World Championship is the culminating event following the program’s nationwide competitions at the local and regional levels, and will take place Oct. 14-16 at the Cavern Cove Competition Range shooting facility in Woodville, Alabama. Registration will open later this summer.
