Aaron Willoughby and Dan Lewis
Greetings from Elite Shotguns! We hope that you had a great month of shooting in October, with some of the largest shoots of the year wrapping up during this time. Elite Shotguns was happy to be a part of the Dixie Grand American Trap shoot in North Carolina, as well as the World Skeet and NSCA Sporting Clays Championships in Texas! Not only were there several Team Kolar shooters who shot well, but we even had some world and national champions crowned! Congratulations to Ben Gallup on winning the World Skeet .410 Championship, as well as Derrick Mein for his stellar performance, winning the NSCA National Sporting HOA! Both shooters shoot the Kolar Max Light shotguns.
Elite Shotguns New San Antonio Store
October was also a great month for Elite Shotguns with the opening of our new store in San Antonio at the National Shooting Complex during the World Skeet Championships. Located in the first vendor building nearest the clubhouse, the store boasts gun brands such as Kolar, Zoli, Rizzini, Browning, Beretta, Fierce Rifles, Fausti, as well as shooting accessories including Lonesome Charlie’s leather, Pilla, Ranger, and Elite “exclusive” apparel! Over 100 firearms could be found in the store during the two events, where guests could demo and purchase the gun of their dreams.
If you attended the NSCA Nationals, the “Golden Ticket” Elite Shotguns sponsored event was a huge success! This was our first year offering this unique opportunity. Station ten on each of the four main event courses had a “Golden Ticket” opportunity. Shooters who broke the “Golden Ticket” target received a chance to win one of three daily prizes given away at Elite Shotguns. Lucky winners were drawn at the end of the day in the Elite store with hundreds of participants hoping to get lucky. Prizes included a new gun each day of the tournament, $500 cash, $2000 gift card to Kolar Arms, and a Beretta A400 as the Grand prize!
On behalf of Elite Shotguns, we would like to thank all the shooters and their families for making our new San Antonio store a success. There is truly no better group of people to work with daily than those involved in the shooting sports.
