It’s National Shooting Sports Month at Bristlecone Shooting, Training & Retail Center in Lakewood, Colorado!

People can go target shooting year-round, but the month of August is National Shooting Sports Month—
a time for the community of firearms owners to celebrate and enjoy the shooting sports with friends,
family and newcomers they want to introduce to these lifetime activities.  So, grab a friend or family member and bring them to Bristlecone for one of the many events, classes and specials we have planned this month!



First Shots Events

You never forget your first shots!  Join the experts at Bristlecone Shooting, Training & Retail Center on select Saturdays throughout August for a welcoming introduction to the safe and recreational use of handguns, rifles and shotguns.  Learn about the shooting sports in a safe and non-intimidating environment!  Receive classroom instruction and then time on the range to take your first shots with a certified instructor.  Everything is included in your registration – targets, ammunition, rental firearms, and eye/ear protection.  Contact us at 303.985.0989 or to register!


This summer there is a new game for EVERYONE to enjoy. The #RangeChallenge: Summer Shots target game is the first target in a series of downloadable target games anyone can participate in to advance firearm safety and promote firearms training in a fun activity.  Sign up to participate in the #RangeChallenge: Summer Shots Target and receive a FREE official target, shirt or hat (while supplies last) and/or in-store offers. Participants can also enter to win giveaways posting to Instagram and using #RangeChallenge.
