American Marksmans

ELEY are incredibly excited to support this new shooting program which encourages anyone to participate and show off their shooting skills. You never know you could be a born natural, so why not participate and find out. For just $20 you can enter the American Marksman local qualifier, you might then progress to one of the 9 region matches.

ELEY are donating ELEY force .22LR ammo for all competitors to shoot their .22 semi-auto matches. So not only do you get the opportunity to bench mark your skills you don’t have to pay for your ammo either.

ELEY jumped at the chance to get involved with this program because it’s a really fun way to encourage people into the world of competitive shooting.
