NSSF: Show Off Your MSR Hunting Photos in Contest for Hunting Trip

National Shooting Sports Foundation

WASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, is helping hunters to reject gun control’s accusations that Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs) aren’t meant for hunting. Nothing could be further from the truth. Today’s hunters have plenty of options when it comes to hunting, and MSRs fit right in.

Now, NSSF has teamed up with The Confluence Group for hunters to proudly show off their 2022 hunting season photos with AR-platform rifles and be entered for a chance to win a Mississippi Deer or Louisiana Hog Hunt.

Entering is easy as sharing.

  1. Take a photo while hunting using an MSR.
  2. Post the photo to Instagram including #LetsGoHunting in the caption.
  3. Submissions are reviewed to ensure they meet requirements.
  4. @letsgohuntingusa may reach out via Instagram to request permission to share the photo on its pages.

MSRs & Hunting


Hunters have been using the latest advancements in technology and tactics for centuries. Today’s hunters have a wide array of tools to choose from when it comes to firearms, concealment, lures (decoys, calls, scents, etc.) and scouting. MSRs, today’s very popular semiautomatic rifle designs, are used by more and more hunters and offer a number of benefits that can suit most hunters. The rifles’ accuracy, reliability, ruggedness and versatility serve hunters well. They are true all-weather firearms and their modularity often allows them to be configured for various applications and body types.

For hunting, these commonly-owned rifles are used for many different types of hunting, from varmint to big game. Today’s MSRs are chambered in nearly all calibers, including those popular with large game like the .243 Winchester, the 6.5 Creedmoor, the venerable .30-06 Springfield and .338 Winchester Short Magnum. The NSSF encourages hunters to share memorable moments from the field when using MSRs through its #LetsGoHunting with MSRs Photo Challenge. There are many photo styles that can be submitted including selfies, trophy photos, group photos and firearms in the field.

MSRs are semiautomatic rifle designs, including the AR-15, AR-10, carbines and similar variants. We challenge you to share a snapshot or video from the field while using your MSR for a chance to win a Mississippi deer or Louisiana hog hunt.
