MASTERS 10th Annual Event Raises Record $54,000 For Shooting Programs By Roxanne Smith SHOOTING INDUSTRY T op firearms industry executives and professional competitors converged on Park City, Ky., July 20-21 to participate in the 10th Annual Shooting Industry Masters. More than 320 shooters raised $54,000 for shooting programs. “We might have to start calling the match the ‘Shooting Industry Masters Theme Park’ based on the number of smiles, fist-pumps and backslaps I saw at this year’s event,” said Randy Molde, Masters chairman. “It was energizing to see 328 industry professionals enjoying two days of the shooting sports thrills that they help millions of others enjoy year round. Raising $54,000 for the shooting programs was icing on the cake. It was only possible through the generous efforts of our 34 sponsors, 82 teams, and numerous prize and equipment donors. We’re incredibly proud to produce the event and be part of such a great industry.” The 10th Annual Masters raised a record-breaking $47,000 for NSSF’s First Shots, including funds raised through auctions on GunBroker.com. This brings the amount raised by the Masters for First Shots to $141,000 in four years. Additionally, $7,000 was raised for USA Shooting. “Once again, I am at a loss for words regarding the supreme efforts FMG Publications puts forth and the superb results you all obtained at the Shooting Industry Masters. I am quite sincere when I say that it just keeps getting better and better!” said Steve Sanetti, NSSF president. The Shooting Industry Masters attracted a record-breaking number of teams and event sponsors.
