MGM Announces New Shipping Policy GM Targets has announced a new shipping policy. Effective Jan. 1, 2011, the company will offer free shipping on most orders valued at more than $250. “We at MGM are providing a huge savings to our loyal customer base,” said Mike Gibson, president of MGM Targets, who pointed out that “hidden charges for shipping and handling” often cause frustration. “I think our above-board policy regarding transportation shows that MGM is a true friend to the shooting industry,” Gibson said. “While we are excited to be able to offer this free shipping to almost all of our product line, there are a couple of exceptions that should be noted. There are a handful of targets that we have always charged transportation cost for, and that policy will continue.” MGM also has introduced a new logo. “We have moved beyond the busy old MGM logo,” Gibson said. “The new logo is clean, simple in design and definitely reflects the qualities of our company: Strong, solid, professional and a straight-to-the-point attitude that our customers have learned to appreciate.” For more information, visit www.mgmtargets.com. M NSSF Launches Models Of Success ask Force 20-20, a committee formed at the NSSF Shooting Sports Summit in 2008 that comprises segments of the firearms, state agency and conservation communities, has launched a “Models of Success” pilot program to raise awareness of the “best-of-the-best” state recruitment and retention initiatives. The chief goal of Task Force 20-20 is to increase hunting and shooting participation by 20 percent by 2014. The NSSF has earmarked $500,000 to promote key Task Force 20-20 initiatives in Minnesota, Oregon, Arizona and Nebraska that seek to grow hunting and shooting sports participation. “NSSF is putting its financial muscle behind these most promising state programs, many of which already have a track record of success,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “Research shows people are interested in trying hunting and shooting. These programs make it easy for them to get started or re-started.” Models of Success follows on the heels of another recently launched NSSF recruitment and retention marketing campaign, “Take Me Hunting/Take Me Shooting.” That pilot program is being evaluated in South Carolina, Alabama and New Jersey.
