Umarex USA Sponsors The Only TV Show Zeroed In On Airguns
FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS – (March 3, 2011) – Umarex USA, known for a wide selection of recreational sport shooting guns, has solidified its title sponsorship of American Airgunner for a third season.
The American Airgunner TV Show airs on Sportsman Channel, the only television and digital media company fully devoted to the more than 82 million sportsmen in the United States. American Airgunner airs on Thursday evenings at 8:30 EST with two weekly re-‐airings. Sportsman Channel is available to more than 25 million U.S. households whose focus is on the outdoor sportsman.
