NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- FMG Publications held its 12th Annual Shooting Industry Masters this past weekend in Sebastian, Florida, with more than 400 members of the industry competing in a plethora of fun shooting events and enjoying the hospitality of the Treasure Coast.

“It was very gratifying to see all those great smiles at this year’s Masters,” said Randy Molde, FMG Publications Vice President of Business Development and Masters Chairman.

“We are very thankful for the tremendous support we received from so many in the industry and the Florida community. The support we received from the Indian River County Shooting Range was unprecedented.”

At this year’s Masters, FMG Publications raised thousands of dollars for NSSF’s First Shots program and USA Shooting. The final amount of money raised will be announced after the completion of an auction on GunBroker.com.

“We at NSSF are very thankful for all the support given to our First Shots program and thanks go to FMG Publications and all the sponsors and participants in this year’s Masters event,” said NSSF President Steve Sanetti.

“Getting prospective recreational shooters with diverse backgrounds to take that all-important ‘first shot’ is so important to our entire industry in this time when so many anti-gun forces are trying to demonize firearms, gun owners and our industry. ”

“With partners like FMG Publications, and the support of the record number of competitors that came out to the Shooting Industry Masters to have fun and contribute to the ongoing success of First Shots, the future of the shooting sports will remain bright.”

In addition, more than $4,000 was raised at the ‘Honors For HAVA’ Golf Tournament, held in conjunction with the Masters. Owned and operated by FMG Publications, the Shooting Industry Masters is an industry-only event that provides those in the industry an opportunity to enjoy shooting in a family reunion environment.
