Created to encourage participation in the shooting sports and emphasize firearms safety, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division is celebrating the 2018 National Shooting Sports Month throughout August.

“We are truly excited about promoting National Shooting Sports Month,” said Jennifer Pittman, Hunter Development Program Manager. “This is the perfect incentive for our regular range customers to introduce someone new to the sport they love and for those who haven’t been out to the range lately to get back out there and get in some practice, so if you’re a fan of the shooting sports, come on out and see what we have to offer.”

Experienced competitors, hunters or people interested in acquiring their first firearm and learning how to shoot are encouraged to visit a range for the purpose of skill building and firearms safety education:

The Richmond Hill Shooting Range is located at 803 Kilkenny Road in Richmond Hill. To learn more about using firearms or find other shooting ranges, visit
