Summer’s on its way, and that means that our tea-sipping cousins across the pond will soon be hosting the London Olympic Games. Americans can look forward to days of entertainment, rampant jingoism as we rake in the medals, and Olympian Rhode shooting for the USA.
Winchester is offering a chance for you and your favorite shooting buddy to get a marksmanship lesson from the world’s number one female skeet shooter.
Just to give you an idea of what kind of caliber shooter she is, Rhode, 17 at the time, won gold in the ’96 games in Atlanta for Women’s Double Trap. She won bronze for skeet four years later in Sydney, and gold again in Athens in 2004. And she continued her winning streak in 2008 when she won silver during the Beijing games. Now, if she wins a medal this summer she will be the first individual Olympic athlete ever to medal in five consecutive games.
Additionally, Winchester is giving customers a $2 rebate per box of AA shotshell ammunition, with a 10 box minimum and 50 box maximum. So, even if you don’t get the grand prize, you can stock up on cheap ammo for your annual summer trips to the shooting ranges. For a chance to win, visit Winchester’s website. The contest runs until Aug. 31.
