Pyramyd Air, the world’s largest Internet airgun retailer, will host its first ever shooting competition, the Pyramyd Air Cup. Shooters from all over the world, amatuer and professionals alike, are welcome to compete for top spots in field target, silhouette and other competitions October 24-26, 2014 at the Tusco Rifle Club in New Philadelphia, Ohio.

“Our mission statement is to grow the shooting community through delivery of stellar products, knowledge and service, ensuring safety and guaranteeing limitless enjoyment. We hope to accomplish our mission through this event and because we are in a serious entertainment business,” Josh Ungier, Pyramyd Air CEO.

Can’t be a competitor? There will also be a “try me” range available to the general public. Airguns, ammo and accessories from leading manufacturers such as AirForce, Hatsan, H&N, Crosman, Air Arms, Umarex, Gamo, Hawke Sport Optics, and many more will be available to test – for FREE.

If that’s not enough, airgun enthusiast Tom Gaylord, The Godfather of Airguns, will be attending. “Come see what field target and silhouette are all about. Compete in the matches — or just observe. Pyramyd Air will also provide the airguns and ammo for anyone to try out on the open ranges, and I’ll be happy to answer your airgun questions. Bring the family for a great airgunning day,” stated Tom Gaylord.

The Pyramyd Air Cup will take place over two days and those with the highest number of “hits” will be named winners. Each competition will have its own set of guidelines. Competitors will shoot in either the pro or sportsman division with classes based on airgun type: PCP or springer. The Field Target portion of the event is governed under the rules of the American Field Target Association. The silhouette portion will consist of two competitions: off-hand and gunslinger.

Prizes and cash will be awarded to the first, second and third place finishers in each division, with the top prize valued at $750. The grand champion – individual with the highest overall score at the end of the weekend – gets an additional $1,000 cash prize. For the PayDay Challenge, the winner gets $200 from a mere $5 entry fee – what a nice pay day!
