Bristlecone August Events

August is National Shooting Sports Month across the country!  

National Shooting Sports Month celebrates the passion we all have for target shooting and a pastime that provides a lifetime of enjoyment that can be shared with families and friends. At the same time, it reminds the public that shooting is a safe, fun activity enjoyed by millions of Americans. 

All August at Bristlecone, we’ve got promotions and events scheduled centered around making it easy and affordable for you and your friends and family to enjoy all that the shooting sports have to offer.  Here is what we have planned:

  • ALL MONTH Give $10, Get $10 on the Bristlecone Range.  Bring in a customer that is brand new to the Bristlecone range (never shot with us before) and you will get $10 off your range bill…. and so will your friend or family member!  Or… you can choose a $10 Bristlecone Gift Card.
  • ALL MONTH get 10% off all intro level classes when you register in August.  You don’t have to take the class in August, just register for a class during the month of August to get the deal.
  • August 18th is FAMILY DAY at Bristlecone Shooting! Look at what’s going on:

FREE Training Seminar at 9AM with breakfast and giveaways!  Meet our instructors and see demos of the drills taught in their classes on the range.
