Get FREE St. Patrick’s Day Targets — Shamrock and Pot of Gold

Free downloadable pot of gold Ireland St Patricks day shamrock target NRA

Today, March 17th, is St. Patrick’s Day. With the current rampant inflation, Biden’s anti-gun Executive Orders, and the war in Ukraine, it may be hard to feel lucky in 2023, but at least you can collect some lucky targets. Here are two free Irish-themed targets to provide some fun and a bit of challenge. Shoot these Shamrocks or the Pot of Gold and see if you have the “luck of the Irish”.

To help celebrate this traditional day of Irish pride, the NRA has created two (2) fun targets you can download, print, and shoot. Try out these free targets. Click each Irish target photo below to open a high-rez PDF file you can download and print.

The first target features a large four-leaf clover in the middle, with 17 other smaller three-leaf shamrocks around the outside. With five black bulls-eyes in the center graphic, that gives you a total of 22 aiming points for shooting fun. For added challenge we suggest you set this Shamrock Target at 100 yards for rimfire rifle and 200 yards for a centerfire gun.

The second target offers the legendary Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow. Along with a big bullseye on the pot, there are 15 shamrocks in gold circles, plus five small gold, diamond-shaped nuggets with tiny bullseyes. Those small red dots will be a challenge even at 100 yards. You’ll need a half-MOA (or better) rifle to “clean” this Pot of Gold Target, hitting the tiny red dots on the diamond nuggets.

Among the many special discounts, a SAKO Rifle sale stood out because of the large $494 discount*, and the fact that with each SAKO S20 rifle the buyer gets TWO complete stock sets. You essentially get two rifles in one — simply by changing the two-section stock configuration. You can run a thumbhole “hunter” version with narrow fore-end, and then change to a “precision version” with a more vertical grip, straight run on the buttstock keel, and straighter, more rectangular fore-end. Watch this video to see how the two stock types work with the interchangeable front and rear stock components:

About the SAKO S20 Modular Rifle

The SAKO S20 is a modular rifle designed to allow the shooter to change the stock configuration easily for different applications. The S20 Hunter features an ergonomic, thumbhole stock with features any hunter will appreciate. The S20 Precision stock components have a more vertical grip and a straight section on the buttstock — good for riding a bag. Using spacers on the buttpad, the S20 stocks allow the shooter to adjust length of pull. And on both stock variations there is a handy quick adjustment for cheekpiece height. The S20 Hunter also features a specially designed 5-round Cartridge Plus magazine (three for magnum calibers), that provides extra length for those who load their own ammo. Additionally, the S20 Hunter/Precision features quick-detach points for mounting sling hardware on both sides of the stock and soft-touch inserts on the fore-end and pistol grip.

There are four (4) chamberings offered. 6.5 PRC, .30-06 Springfield, and .300 Win Mag are discounted $494.00, while the 6.5 Creedmoor is discounted $291.00.

And in a venue renowned for service rifle matches, the sport of precision pistol is no less important, no less challenging, and no less respected.

It’s all unmistakable as the game of Bullseye Pistol. Every year there are no fewer than 24 separate match trophies for the top Bullseye Pistol shooters, both military and civilian. And the very best will claim National Match Trophies and receive the President’s 100 Tab.
