““NRA Outdoors has always been about offering the best hunting and fishing destinations in the industry. Now hosting our first annual long range hunting/shooting school, we are very honoured to be partnered with a company such as SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA. They represent the quality and reputation in the outdoor industry that NRA Outdoors wants to be associated with. One thing I have noticed in the field over the years is that SWAROVSKI OPTIK users don’t talk about their ‘optics’, they talk about their ‘SWAROVSKI’S’,” says Greg Ray, President of NRA Outdoors.

Rob Lancellotti, Public Relations Associate for SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA says, “We are excited to partner with such respected names in the hunting and shooting industry. The first annual NRA Outdoors shooting school and our partnering with NRA Outdoors, and Weatherby Rifles combined with the expertise and experience of the instructors is a great opportunity for SWAROVSKI OPTIK. It’s a perfect venue to demonstrate the superior performance of our optics and how they enhance the hunter/shooters experience and success in the field. Spotting scopes, range finding binoculars, and riflescopes will be utilized for the event.”
