The Italian Firearms Group (IFG) http://www.ifg-usa.com/ and the Italian gun manufacturer F.A.I.R. are proud sponsors of the 109th Annual Texas State Trapshooting Championships being held July 4 to 9, 2023, at the Amarillo Gun Club, Amarillo, Texas.
“We are thrilled to support the Texas State Trapshooting Championships and are really looking forward to the intense competition that takes place during this event,” said Justin Dodd, IFG President. “Texas trapshooters are among the best and the most dedicated competitors in the nation, and it only made sense for IFG and F.A.I.R. to contribute to this outstanding event!”
F.A.I.R. (www.italianfirearmsgroup.com/fair/) is Italy’s largest manufacturer of side-by-side firearms and the second largest producer of that nation’s over-and-under shotguns. Located in Marcheno, Italy, F.A.I.R. was established in 1971 and is dedicated to combining cutting edge technology with Old World attention to the art and craft of gun making. In addition to its high-quality competition and hunting shotguns, F.A.I.R. produces exceptional over-and-under and side-by-side rifles for discerning hunters.
The State Trapshooting Championships are facilitated by the Texas Trapshooters Association (www.shoottta.org/?start=5), a group whose mission is to promote the shotgun sports and wildlife conservation as well as introduce safe shooting to Lone Star youth.
The host venue, the Amarillo Gun Club (amarillogunclub.org ) has been a favorite of Texas Panhandle shotgunners for over 65 years and is the site of many trap and skeet competitions and charitable benefit shoots, featuring thousands of participants and onlookers. The Club has hosted numerous Texas State Championship Trapshoots.
No doubt, some of the 2023 Championships participants will be using F.A.I.R. competition guns like the Fossari BSR and the Racing II models.
