‘FACEBOOK’ FOR GUN-OWNERS:
The Shooting Club’ app could evolve into digital advocacy tool.
A smartphone app that that connects marksmen and markswomen with each other, as well as provides GPS listings of the nearest shooting ranges, is being lauded as the “Facebook for gun-owners” and could evolve into a digital advocacy tool for gun owners nationwide.
By mid-November, The Shooting Club has secured 100 contracts with bricks-and-mortar shooting ranges to carry TSC Targets in-store. In early November, it secured online retail distribution of TSC Targets through Amazon with free shipping for prime members.
Downloading the app is free. It allows users to find the nearest range on GPS, buy a unique target, use that target when shooting, take a picture of the completed target and then upload that to the app. The app offers cash and prizes for the winning targets.
