With a trailer full of targets, ammo, Nitro Piston, Marauders and more, Crosman’s Shooting Services headed west for Ames, Iowa and the JAX Shootout. JAX Mercantile started in Colorado fifty years ago and today has stores in Fort Collins, Loveland, Lafayette and Bellvue, plus the Ames, Iowa location. The Shootout was devised to raise awareness of the store by letting folks try product before they buy. This year the folks at JAX invited Crosman to participate and rather than ship a few guns, we loaded up the Crosman rig for the 964 mile trip.
Despite a tornado just to the south of Ames as we arrived and weeks of rain, the day of the event was gorgeous. Local boy scouts took their turn at the AirSource 2250XT and veteran shooters looking for the latest in airguns had a chance to try the Benjamin Marauder .22, .177 and .25. A Benjamin Discovery was also on hand, as was a Silhouette PCP Pistol.
Shooting Services is on the road nearly every week of the year, providing air guns and ammunition to charitable events, shooting ranges to large customer-oriented functions and corporate outings. Our goal is to provide quality instruction and bring the fun of air guns, airsoft and archery while emphasizing safety.
