Team Winchester pro shooters such as Becky Yackley will appear in videos for new gun owners.


From the Winchester Ammunition New Shooters website:

“Being in the possession of a firearm is just the beginning. As a new shooter, it’s also important to possess the right attitude, knowledge and skills that come from training. Get started with advice on equipment and ammo.”

Here is what Matt Campbell, the vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition, had to say about the new digital platform for new shooters.

“More than 12 million people since the beginning of 2020 purchased a firearm for the first time, and that is in addition to the more than 56 million people in the U.S. who currently target shoot. As an industry leader, we are committed to helping educate people about the many topics surrounding firearms, ammunition, safety and more. More and more people want to participate in the shooting sports and hunting. Our audience is diverse and growing, and this platform will be an excellent resource.”
