Shot Heard ‘Round the World Day – April 19th

If you know your American History, the term “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” means something to you. This term refers to the first shot fired of the American Revolution in Lexington, MA. It occurred on April 19, 1775 at 7:30a.m.  Did you know that a group of participating shooting ranges and organizations across the United States holds an annual event to commemorate this fateful day, and to increase awareness in regards to firearms safety and shooting sports?

Interested in getting involved? There is a website for that! Best of all, the site’s content is all based on user feedback. was designed to introduce site visitors to suppliers, mentor groups and ranges from all over to provide quality and safe shooting sports experiences. Plus, their home page features dedicated posts for those sponsoring entities. That means your business could easily get involved, help spread the word about shooting sports, and earn some kudos all at once!

Since the Shot Heard ‘Round the World website is still in its infancy, this is the perfect opportunity to get your business showcased through great customer service, the commitment to your local community and firearms education, and shooting sports fun! Just spread the word to your customers, and ask them to share their experiences with your business!

Currently, there are organizations and ranges from 7 states featured. Since the Gearfire Network of dealers spans across nearly EVERY state in the USA, we can quickly increase awareness for Shot Heard ‘Round the World Day!

Taken directly from the site:

“Whether you’re an archer, black powder enthusiast, hunter, or a weekend practice shooter, we’d love for you to share with us what you like and what you don’t. We can link you to destinations and groups that equip and support. Share your photos with us and become an ambassador for responsible firearm ownership.”

Let’s be honest, these days there isn’t a lot of GOOD content online or in the media in regards to firearms. With your help, we can convince our less-educated citizens that firearms aren’t bad for our country, and responsibly armed citizens are just as dedicated to the safety of their local communities (if not more so) than anybody else. Plus, if your business hosts an event next April, you can really show your community spirit, and recognize one of the most important days in American history.

This article is an invitation to every dealer in the Gearfire Network. It all starts with you. Get involved by contacting the website administrator. Find out how to be part of the organizations that support safe, legal, and responsible forms of recreational shooting and firearm ownership. Then, next April 19th, celebrate the birth of the American Revolution, and have some fun with patriotic citizens all over the country!
