Think you’ve got better aim than local law enforcement personnel? Gun Garage, formerly Guns and Ammo Garage, will host the first-ever “Shoot for our Stars” range shooting competition and safety fair with local law enforcement officers to benefit Special Olympics Nevada. Amateur shooters and gun enthusiasts are invited to demonstrate their skills against top active local law enforcement officers on Wednesday, April 16 from 5 to 8 p.m. This event is family-friendly and open to the public.
Designed to become an annual event, “Shoot for our Stars” will provide each participant with a three station shooting package including a pistol, Uzi and Krinkov as well as shooting target, souvenir photo with their competitor, food and drink, and one raffle ticket. Registration is priced at $100, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Special Olympics Nevada. Participants may register by visiting http://www.Shootingforourstars.com . Participants must be at least 16 years of age and accompanied by an adult to compete.
During the competition, the outdoor safety fair will feature food and non-alcoholic drinks for sale, law enforcement vehicles including K-9 and SWAT, booths, a raffle and officers on hand to answer questions and provide safety information to the public. Guests are invited to cheer on participants by watching inside the range or can hang out at the safety fair outside.
“Anything we can do to give back to our local community is important to us,” said Darby Neagle, owner of Gun Garage. “This event is a fun and exciting way to raise money for a wonderful organization. We look forward to seeing who will have the best shot.”
The funds raised from this event will benefit the more than 3,000 Special Olympics athletes who participate in sports training and competitions at no cost to the athlete or their family.
