    If you are looking for a career in the firearms and shooting sports industry, there are a variety of ways to land one.  The easiest for many people is to start at a local gun store or big box retailer.

    There are, however, national companies and manufacturers who are hiring on a regular basis.  Searching a company’s site will often locate an employment page with current job openings listed.  Hitting Smith & Wesson’s website or cruising over to Ruger’s yields a variety of jobs from engineers to analysts to sales managers.

    Don’t forget about the large online retailers either.  Midway USA is hiring, as are Cheaper Than Dirt and Brownells.

    The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) also publishes a list of industry jobs on their website.  As of this writing, the list includes jobs at companies including Remington, FNH USA and SOG Specialty Knives.

    If you are looking to get into the shooting industry, the jobs are out there.  And with the internet, they are easier to find than ever before.
