Recreational shooters to commemorate historic “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” April 21

Posted April 16, 2018

 

 

PHOENIX — April 19, 1775.

At 7:30 a.m., the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” was fired on the village green in Lexington, Mass., between the colonial militia and British army, regarded historically as the start of the American Revolutionary War.

On Saturday morning, recreational shooters of all skill levels are invited to commemorate that historic moment 243 years later by gathering socially at the small bore range at the world-class Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix.

Schedule of events:

Interested recreational shooting organizations, retailers, and manufacturers can register for booth space by e-mailing Kathryn Watson at kwatson@azgfd.gov.

The event, being promoted at public shooting ranges across the nation, also will provide an opportunity to increase participation and boost the economic benefits that shooting sports provide. As recreational shooters visit BASF from 8 a.m. to noon, they will be connected to recreational shooting organizations setting up displays in the area adjacent to the range.
