Mountain Grove, MO – July 24 – Team Rough ‘Riters heads to the 13th annual Shooting Industry Masters at Claythorne Lodge in Columbus, Kan., from July 24 to 25. More than likely the first type of its kind to compete in the Masters, Team Rough ’Riters is comprised of 2 freelance writers in the gun world and their better halves.
Named the Rough ‘Riters in honor of Teddy Roosevelt’s character and ability to connect words in prose, the team garnered sponsorship from the following companies and organizations: Volquartsen Custom, Remington Outdoor Company, Crossbreed Holsters, DIVA WOW, The Well Armed Woman, Gun Goddess and A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League. Hosted by FMG Publications, the Shooting Industry Masters invites the firearms industry to send teams to this themed competition to raise money on the range for the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s First Shots program. This year’s setting is the Roaring Twenties.
