We are proud to be members and we challenge everyone in our industry to join with us.
Above is a quick link to the join the portal. Look around and see what your membership can bring you. We think you will come to the same decision that we did a few years ago that joining was a no brainer. As a member, the NSSF will promote your events through their social calendar and provide you with a free promotional start up package.
Also check out the +1 initiative this year and look at the fun ways to get folks involved at your gun range or retail business. Challenging all of us to get one new person started into our sport. As part of it we are giving away T-shirts to folks who send us pics of their +1 at the range, in the field, or enjoying the shooting sports in any way. Giveaways are great way to get folks to participate. Who doesn’t like a little free swag? If your swag is branded to your company, it’s free promotion. A win-win for everyone.
Looking forward to see all of you in a few months in Vegas at the SHOT show, if we don’t see you at a show in between!
