Park City, KY -( As the 2016 Firearms Industry Team Challenge and Firearms Industry Choice Awards draw near, companies continue registering teams and furnishing sponsorships in support of the industry-only event.

The Firearms Industry Team Challenge and Industry Choice Awards will be held at the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, KY from July 21-23, 2016.

“Shooting industry execs and professionals are invited to participate in the three-day match for a weekend of fellowship, first-class shooting amenities, and shooting fun,” says Rockcastle Shooting Center CEO, Nick Noble. “For many industry people, taking part in an event like this offers a rare opportunity to truly enjoy the shooting lifestyle. Because of such intense interest, we’ve decided to allow more shooting teams and individuals to register for the shooting portion,” said Noble. “Register your team or yourself today, while there are still slots left.”

“Where else can you spend a weekend of friendly competitive shooting while at the same time talk with industry folks about the current and future condition of the firearms marketplace?” asks Match Director, Andy Horner.

“Plus, you can see Rockcastle Estates, the only resort-style Second Amendment living community of its kind in the U.S. With country club living for gun owners, you might just decide to retire and stay here,” Horner added.

“The response to our inaugural event has been widespread,” says Noble. “With so many shooting team registrations and product submissions for the Firearms Industry Choice Awards, we’re thrilled at the industry’s enthusiastic reaction. In addition to accepting product contributions for use as auction and raffle items to benefit Mission 22 and USA Cares, there are still a handful of event sponsorships available,” he added.

“Although it’s too late to submit product for the 2016 awards, there’s still time to be included as a sponsor or to donate product for our fundraising efforts,” adds Noble. “Your brand will enjoy great visibility during the weekend even if you’re not able to attend,” said Noble.

“All of the products that were submitted for the 2016 Firearms Industry Choice Awards were recently evaluated by a diverse team of people incuding firearm retailers, distributors, professional shooters, gun smiths, law enforcement and military personnel, members of the outdoor media, and recreational shooters,” said Noble.

Manufacturers were encouraged to submit products to be evaluated for fit, form, finish and functionality, and winning product categories include: rifle, handgun, shotgun, optic, accessory, and ammunition of the year. Winners of the Firearms Industry Choice Awards will be formally announced on July 23rd during the shooting event.
