Hit the Range this Weekend for Free Ammo and Swag

Going to the range, and taking a friend, could get you some free swag and ammo this weekend.

As part of their new Ammo Ambassador program, ammotogo.com and MagTech are offering 100 rounds of 9mm ammunition free to experienced shooters who take a new shooter to the range.

The promotion is designed to incentivize teaching a friend or family member how to safely use a firearm.

"We're committed to growing the shooting community and introducing as many folks as possible to the joy of shooting," said a release form ammtogo.com. "We're giving away 100,000 rounds—that's 2,000 boxes of 9mm ammo just for bringing a new shooter to the range."

Also this weekend, from October 9-11, Springfield will be sending representatives to 37 shooting ranges in several states as part of its Hit The Range program, to award the first 50 shooters a free t-shirt, 5 rounds of 9mm MagTech ammunition , a target, and a sticker or coozie. Check out their website to see if there's a participating range near you. If you were planning on punching paper this weekend anyway, you might as well show up early and get stuff.

You'll also get a chance to preview Springfield's new XD Mod.2 4" Service Model 9mm pistol. Check out this release for more details.
