Victory Defense Consulting partners up with some of the industry's most influential companies to host the Colorado Freedom Shoot on June 29-30, 2013. The competition will be held at Colorado's largest public range, the Pawnee Sportsmen's Center in Briggsdale, CO. This family-friendly event will have handgun, carbine and long-range challenges for cash prizes, gear and giveaways. Participants may shoot solo or compete as teams.

“Due to the recent legislation that was passed by the Colorado state legislature, this could very well be the last competition of its kind held in Colorado,” stated President of Victory Defense Consulting, J.J. Sutton. “This shoot is important because it's the last shoot where one can acquire magazines that can carry, or be adapted to carry more than 15 rounds in the state of Colorado.Not only that, but the new legislation now sends jobs, manufacturers and tens of millions in revenue to other states – leaving many without jobs.”

Along with the competitions will be skeet, trap and sporting clays events. Featured shooters will be on hand to provide demonstrations, instruction and pose for photographs.Several of Colorado’s Senior Law Enforcement Officials who have joined together in a Law Suit against the new legislation will also be in attendance to discuss their efforts in protecting the freedoms Colorado citizens are seeing altered.
