The Alamo City Shooting & Outdoor Sportsfest

Click Here for More Information

The Alamo City Shooting & Outdoor Sportsfest is an annual event organized and sponsored by Students for the Second Amendment and The Collegiate Firearms Instructor Program

The purpose of this event is to introduce young people, families, and youth-serving organizations to the safe enjoyment of the shooting sports, as well as many other outdoor sports and activities. The focus of the event is safety and education.

This event is being held at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio. Daughter #3 competed at this complex during the 4H State Finals and calling it a "shooting range" does not do it justice. Complex is the more accurate term to describe a facility with 92 Skeet and Trap fields, 5 Sporting Clays courses, 2 NSCA 5-Stand Sporting fields and 150 positions on the pistol/rifle ranges. This is quite the complex.

The Alamo City Shooting and Outdoor Sportsfest is billed as the "Largest NRA Shooting Sports Camp in the United States".

The Sportsfest offers the following:

Pistol Shooting ~ Rifle Shooting

Shotgun Shooting ~ Field Archery

Muzzleloading Pistol & Rifle Shooting

Cowboy Action Shooting ~ Wildlife Education

Bass Casting & Fishing ~Hunters Skills Trail

Historic Firearm Displays ~ Map & Compass

Living History Reenactors ~ Hunting Dogs

Military Demonstrations & Vehicles and much more!

The best part is that this even is FREE for folks 18 years and younger, and only $5.00 for adults.

Events such as this are an outstanding way to introduce our shooting and outdoor sports heritage to the next generation.

Sponsors for this event are listed here, these are individuals and organizations actively working to promote youth shooting programs in America.
