Fairfax, Virginia - In addition to sponsoring our exciting Women's Wilderness Escape, Smith & Wesson continues with its support of the NRA by joining our NRA 3 Gun Experience (3GE) program as the official sponsor. Managed by the NRA Sports Department, 3GE events are fun, introductory activities to the popular 3 Gun shooting sport that attract new shooters to a range and create thrilling experiences for club members.

“We are excited to work with a renowned firearms manufacturer in Smith & Wesson,” said Managing Director of NRA Recreational Programs & Ranges Elizabeth Bush. “Together we are looking forward to introducing 3 Gun to men and women of all ages, increasing interest in the shooting sports and to secure our freedoms for future generations.”

The NRA 3GE program is a fun, exhilarating, and physical activity created to expose new and intermediate shooters to 3 Gun competition. Events feature .22 or AirSoft rifles, pistols, and shotguns, creating a level playing field among participants. Although competitive, the primary focus of 3GE events is to educate shooters on the rules of the sport in a safe environment.

“NRA 3GE is an excellent way to get hands-on experience with the fastest growing action shooting sport in the world,” said Smith & Wesson Director of Marketing Communications Paul Pluff. “Smith & Wesson is proud to join the NRA in bringing this family friendly activity to ranges across the United States and foster the next generation of competitive shooters.”

Smith & Wesson’s sponsorship will provide participating ranges with 3GE gear, promotional materials, and certificates for participants and volunteers.
