Another of Australia’s biggest names in firearms, ammunition and accessories has been added to the growing list of exhibitors at the SSAA SHOT Expo.
OSA Australia, which distributes Lithgow Arms, Sauer, Henry, Howa, Blaser, Mauser among many other brands, joins Winchester, Polaris, Beretta and Swarovski as a gold sponsor of the October 19-20 Expo.
These sponsors and dozens of other distributors are filling the main hall at the Melbourne Showgrounds where the event will be held.
They are bringing the latest firearms, hunting equipment, recreation vehicles, optics, apparel, ammunition, range equipment and accessories to the event.
More than 15,000 visitors are expected to come to the Expo, which continues to be Australia’s longest running and most trusted shooting, hunting and outdoor trades show.
SSAA Victoria, which is hosting the event, will focus on providing a pathway to the shooting sports for those interested.
“Our research shows that many people who come to the event are curious about what’s required to take up shooting,” said SSAA Victoria Communications Manager Justin Law.
“SSAA Victoria wants to help foster that interest by providing training and helping new shooters navigate the onerous firearms licence application process.
“The SSAA SHOT Expo is the perfect opportunity to provide a roadmap for those with no experience to become a safe and responsible shooter.”
Mr Law said that the Main Stage presentations during the SHOT Expo will focus on the opportunities for new shooters.
“Once a person gets their firearms licence, the next step is purchasing a firearm and getting involved with the many different shooting disciplines provided by SSAA Victoria.
“To help them take that next step, the Main Stage will feature presentations on getting started, buying a firearm and getting into hunting, handguns and clay target shooting.”
