Watch the video above for a behind-the-scenes look at the twentieth anniversary IDPA Indoor Nationals and the Factory Cup, hosted by Team Smith & Wesson this past February in Springfield, MA. After the match, 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 joys of competitive shooting.

All this month, Smith & Wesson is encouraging participation in competitive shooting sports through its “Camaraderie through Competition” social media campaign on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. This campaign highlights Smith & Wesson’s efforts to get shooting enthusiasts out on the range to enjoy the shooting sports with family and friends.

Each week, Smith & Wesson will deliver social media content featuring members of Team Smith & Wesson, shooting tips, exciting video content, and sweepstakes opportunities for competitive shooters of all ages and skill levels. You can view all of the great content posted and shared by following Smith & Wesson Corp. on Facebook, and by using the hashtag #shareshooting on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

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.”
