NVST is Designed to:
- Help foster the growth of firearms ownership as well as the awareness and understanding within the overall general public of the of the practical uses of all firearms: self-defense; recreational and competitive shooting sports; just for fun; collecting.
- Provide unparalleled access to and build awareness of the importance, need, and availability of continuous and qualitive skill building and training an individual firearm owner needs to be an effective and safe firearms owner.
- Grow the sport of recreational and competitive shooting among firearms owners and the benefits that participating in them can have in their overall skill building/honing and readiness.
For us (and the firearms community as a whole) to achieve these goals, it is essential that there is easily available and accessible structured information on defensive-firearms training and shooting sports opportunities within Nevada and the surrounding areas.
That is why we have created and maintain our website as a single, dedicated source of information combined with a full-fledged social community where people from within the already established firearms community can come together with those outside of the community can connect and share experiences, tips and more (like their love of firearms and/or shooting sports).
On Our Site People Can Find:
- News and Articles to keep Nevada firearms owner informed and up to date on local news, issues, and information that can affect them and the firearms community as a whole.
- A Structured Event Calendar with Firearms/Self-Defense Training, Shooting Matches, Meetups and Other Firearms Related Events from within Nevada as well as from the immediate surrounding areas;
- A Structured Directory of Local Firearms Retailers, Firearms Instructors, Gunsmith's, Ranges and More;
- A Social Community featuring full profiles, discussion forums, and the ability to see and share updates, videos and photos and where people can find and discuss all sorts of things like local, regional and/or national shooting events, Defensive Firearms Training tips and More;
- And More to Come… We Are Just Getting Started!
Our Target Demographics and Goals
Three Main Target Demographics and Goals for Each
- Those who have never, or have extremely limited, experience with firearms and may, or may not, be on the fence of whether or not ownership is right for them. Our goal with this demographic is to catch their attention and show them that there is a consolidated helpful resource for them to find various ways to get the information and training they need to make the jump into becoming an owner of a firearm.
- Those who may have a firearm(s) but have limited to no real training or experience with that firearm(s). Our goal with this demographic is to get them out to local ranges and instructors and get and keep them trained with the skills they need to be a responsible firearms owner. Our key marketing term with this group is that “Just Owning a Firearm is Not Enough”.
- Those who have regular experience with firearms. Our goal with this group is to keep them trained and get them out shooting in recreational and competitive shooting sports, like that of IDPA, USPSA and Other Similar Organized Shooting Sports, as way to further hone their skills and experience in a fun and low-cost, yet structured, way that local organized shooting matches can provide.
We are hoping that a by-product of our efforts will be to open the eyes of the general public of the push (and ample opportunities and resources) to get and keep people who have firearms trained and that there are other firearms uses outside of self-protection such as the numerous and various type of Shooting Sports where people use various types and numbers of firearms.

Sponsor A Giveaway(s)!
It’s no secret one of the best and most effective ways to get your business and/or products or services out in front of everyone is to sponsor one (or more) Giveaways!
This is a mutually beneficial avenue for everyone involved! By giving away something worthwhile every month we can grow our General Members and Premium Supporter base which in turn gets more and more quality eyes on you!
To effectively make this as mutually beneficial as possible, we use proven program systems like Gleam which allows us to require members to visit your website, like/visit your social media channels, watch a video or much more on a single or daily basis to earn a various number entries to win the prize.
We hold giveaways monthly with each month requiring a new set of prizes and sponsor commitments.
Giveaways are hosted via a special page on our website and are optimized to showcase the participating sponsors via a static and dedicated banner spot. They are then marketed:
- through weekly dedicated email blasts to our members
- through our weekly Newsletter to members and general email subscribers
- through weekly dedicated Social Media Blasts (i.e. Facebook; Twitter; Instagram; Etc.)
- through weekly dedicated NVSSFTN Social Community Blasts
- through shares by members to their friends and family
To participate as a Giveaway sponsor you can either:
- Provide a product or service to give away and/or
- Provide a monetary contribution towards a prize of our choosing
Products or services that are given away should directly or closely relate to the purpose of the Nevada Shooting Sports & Firearms Training Network. Examples would be, but are not limited to:
- Firearm Parts or Accessories
- Registration to a class or event
- Gunsmithing or Personalization
- Clothing or Tactical Equipment
But Wait! There's More Coming and It Gets Even Better!
We are currently in Phase 1 of our roll out. Phase 2 & 3 have some exciting features we are eager to get out to you and the public!
That’s right there’s even more coming! Phase 2 & 3 of our planned roll out are planned to roll out around the same time or within close proximity to each other. The good news? You can get on-board with this now!
(COMING SOON) We are currently developing the Network and we are excited to bring this to you now before it goes public!
In this phase we will be launching a Premium Supporter feature that will allow us to offer premium benefits to our members who become a Paid Supporters for a low-cost ($5 to $10 per month) which will help us to continue to operate while building a strong audience that you can benefit from while being able to offer reasonable, and in some cases free, advertising options to you.
By becoming a Participating Network Business, you can get any of our paid advertising options DEEPLY discounted plus you will be given the use of our 'Participating Network Business Member' Label! Oh, and you can get those discounts now, even before it goes public!
To be a Participating Network Business Member all you have to do is (when the program launches) provide a minimum discount to our Premium Supporters on 3 different levels: Silver, Gold and a Third (and very special tier) to be announced a little later down the road after successful rollout of this phase.
For example, we would ask you provide a minimum discount of 5% on a product(s) or service(s) to Silver Supporters and 10% to Gold Supporters. This can be on anything you choose so long as you provide a discount on something every month (service, registration, products, etc.…). * Remember you are also trying to draw our members to your business and make your business stand out from the rest!
In return all your listings on our website would get the Participating label and you could receive up to 40% (minimum of 25%) off any of our advertising options!
The only other stipulation is there is a one-year commitment you must agree to… That’s it! If you sign-up before we launch the program your commitment starts from the launch date but your discounts start the moment you sign the agreement!
Super-secret squirrel stuff here… you may have read within our marketing materials something about print advertising and you might have thought we were having a Biden moment… Nope! We aren’t suffering dementia (at least we don’t think so, yet?) Anyways, More to come on this SOON!
