Smith & Wesson Promotes Shooting Sports through May Social Media Campaign
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Smith & Wesson today announced that during the month of May, the company will encourage participation in competitive shooting sports through its “Camaraderie through Competition” social media campaign on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. Each week, Smith & Wesson will deliver social media content featuring members of Team Smith & Wesson, shooting tips, exciting video content, and sweepstakes opportunities to engage and inspire competitive shooters of all abilities and ages. Fans can see all of the content posted and shared by following Smith & Wesson Corp. on Facebook and by using the hashtag #shareshooting on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The “Camaraderie through Competition” social media campaign highlights Smith & Wesson’s efforts to get shooting enthusiasts out on the range to enjoy the shooting sports with family and friends. Matt Buckingham, President of Smith & Wesson’s Firearms Division, said, “Team Smith & Wesson has been out on the range practicing and competing this spring, and with the NRA Bianchi Cup just around the corner, May is a great time to get people excited about the shooting sports. We are very proud of all that our employees and Team Smith & Wesson do to promote shooting events across the nation.”
In February, Team Smith & Wesson hosted the 20th Anniversary IDPA Indoor Nationals in Springfield, MA. Afterwards, the team remained at the range to kick-off the first ever Smith & Wesson Factory Cup, which introduced 40 of the company’s employees to the fun of competitive shooting.
