San Diego, Calif. — Shooting Industry magazine kicks off fall with its September issue, which contains a comprehensive review of the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence awards, plus much more.
The 20th annual Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence awards reception, held July 22 in Bowling Green, Ky., was an evening filled with pageantry, patriotism and tributes. The ceremony honored the year’s top products, manufacturer, distributor and distinguished leader, along with the Academy’s founder.
“When the people who produce, compete and serve in the same market say to their peers, ‘You did the best job this year,’ it has a tremendous effect on morale and future projects,” said Randy Molde, Academy director.
