MISSOULA – Bob Ward’s Sports & Outdoors’ 11th Annual Shooter’s Weekend will be held on August 2nd and 3rd. Proceeds from the shooting demo this year will benefit Operation Valor. Bob Ward’s has teamed up with several of the top brands in hunting and shooting to raise funds for Operation Valor, whose mission is to provide Combat Veterans and their Families with a Support Team, tools, and training required to successfully transition into their community as a productive and independent survivor.


On Saturday, August 2nd, the shoot will be held in the Missoula area at Deer Creek Shooting Center.

On Sunday, August 3rd, the shoot moves to the Butte area and will be held at the Rocker Gun Range.

Times for both events are 10am – 4pm. There is no charge for spectators, but there is a charge to demo guns and shoot. Proceeds from shooting tickets in the past have been donated by Bob Ward’s to various outdoor and sporting related causes.

Shooter’s Weekend is an opportunity for enthusiasts to experience hands on demonstrations of a variety of rifles, shotguns, and handguns from many different manufacturers. Shooters are encouraged to bring friends and family, as this is an event for everyone from novices to experts. Bob Ward’s experienced staff, vendors and volunteers will be on hand to assist all shooters. Children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent in order to shoot.

The world’s top firearm manufactures will be represented along with several more exclusive brands. In addition to the usual rifle, shotgun, and pistol stations, this year’s Shooter’s Weekend will feature a suppressor station and a large caliber station. We can’t give everything away, though. A few surprise items will be available that are sure to be crowd pleasers!

Bob Ward’s and the manufacturers provide firearms and ammunition and request that the public not bring their own.
