2011 Masters Tournament Raises $37K for First Shots Program

Top firearms industry executives and pro shooters participated in the Ninth Annual Shooting Industry Masters, held July 22-23 in Park City, Kentucky. A record-breaking 370 competitors raised $37,000 for NSSF’s First Shots program. This brings the amount raised by the Masters for First Shots to $94,000 in three years. The Masters, held at the Rockcastle Shooting Center, Park Mammoth Resort, is owned and operated by FMG Publications. The leading male and female pro shooters were Jerry Miculek (Team Smith & Wesson) and Tasha Hanish (Team FNH).

“We had nearly 500 people each day participating in the event, with competitors and volunteers combined,” said Randy Molde, match chairman. “It was exciting to see so many folks who are used to sitting behind desks all day out enjoying the sport they help make better. We’re thankful they chose to spend the weekend with us to support First Shots.”

The Masters is a handgun, rifle, shotgun competition divided into two classifications: Industry and Open. The Industry class is for new to intermediate shooters, while the Open class is for professional and advanced shooters, many of whom compete on the USPSA and 3-Gun Nation circuits. Regardless of class, scores are not published. This helps maintain the traditional, no-pressure, fun atmosphere of the Masters.
