NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, is pleased to announce that Federal Ammunition has signed on to be the Educational Sponsor of its 2019 Range-Retailer Business ExpoTM. Headquartered in Anoka, Minnesota, Federal Ammunition is a maker of handgun, shotgun and rifle ammunition for the consumer, law enforcement and military markets.
“We are thrilled to have Federal Ammunition lend its support to our all-new Range-Retailer Business Expo by sponsoring its expansive number of educational seminars,” said Zach Snow, NSSF Director, Retail and Range Business Development. “This is a brand well-recognized by ranges and FFLs and its investment in the continued success of their businesses is greatly appreciated.”
“Federal Ammunition is proud to partner with the NSSF on what we view as a critical segment of business,” said Michael Kinn, the company’s Director, Events. “Our participation in the Range-Retailer Business Expo and being the Educational Sponsor is just one way we demonstrate our commitment to the people and businesses that cultivate and support our shooting industry.

The 2019 Range-Retailer Expo, a first-of-its-kind event, was created to be a comprehensive educational experience for today’s firearms range operators and FFL retailers. A wide variety of panel discussions led by today’s top industry professionals will address the needs of those in the startup phase of new store or range builds, entrepreneurs expanding their current enterprises and veteran business owners seeking insights and information to take their companies to the next level. The expo’s three days of seminars are supported by a dedicated range and retail trade show with dozens of vendors offering the latest in indoor firearms range equipment, software solutions designed to streamline enterprise processes and enhance the customer experience, target manufacturers and product distributors among others.
NSSF’s first Range-Retailer Business Expo takes place Aug. 19-21 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. All firearms retailers and range operators, including those in the startup phase, are invited to attend, and NSSF members receive a significant discount on their registration fee.
