Remington Ammunition Partners

Remington Ammunition, in partnership with the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation, has been named the recipient of a Midway USA Foundation Range Development Grant to build a sporting-clays course for youth. The grant was awarded to the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation and will be used at the Remington Gun Club. Construction on the state-of-the-art facility is scheduled for completion late this summer.

“Remington looks forward to hosting thousands of youth shooters from across the nation for future events at our gun club,” said Jon Zinnel, conservation program manager for Remington Ammunition. “Without the grant from the Midway USA Foundation and the support of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation, building this new course wouldn’t have been possible.”

The clays course will be a welcome addition to Remington’s historic Gun Club, a public trap and skeet club located on the grounds of the Remington Ammunition plant in Lonoke, AR. The club, also soon expanding to include a retail store, welcomes thousands of shooters annually and is open year-round.

“Remington Ammunition’s addition of a sporting-clays facility will provide Arkansas youth with a top-notch sporting facility to practice and compete,” said Deke Whitbeck, president of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation. “We look forward to our partnership with Remington Ammunition and introducing thousands of Arkansas youth to another clay target shooting opportunity.”

The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain and grow the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Donations to the organization are tax-deductible and assist in expanding and enhancing the leadership, skills, confidence and disciple of today’s youth through shooting sports activities.

An NRA Foundation grant has also recently been put to work helping Missouri S3DA purchase target bales for the Indoor State Championship it will be hosting the first quarter of 2022. The investment, according to Missouri S3DA, has positioned its program to become one of the top-notch Indoor events for the youth. As Missouri S3DA President Faron Teague always says, “It’s really about the kids.”
