Shooting Sports Predictions and Trends for 2020 and Beyond

Sport 25 January, 2020

In 2020, we can expect to see a lot of changes and new guns in the sports gun market and shooting sports as well. For example, this sport will be more “women-friendly” in the coming years. The ammunition supply is going to be better. Also, the number of national and international events will be on the rise.

These are just some of the things that are likely to happen next year. We don’t want to reveal everything straight away. If you are interested in finding out more, take a few minutes of your precious time to read through this post.

Let us walk you through predictions and trends that will impact the future of shooting sports in 2020 and beyond.

The Ammunition Prices Will Go Down

The good news is that sport shooting ammunition will be slightly cheaper in many states. That will allow shooting sports enthusiasts to shoot more. The same goes for reloading equipment, which is also expected to be less expensive in 2020. This will make shooting sports more appealing to people on a budget.

Better Gun Accessories and Ammo Supply

Whether you are looking for handgun ammo, rifle ammunition or shotgun shells, you will be able to find supplies much easier. For instance, many shooters and hunters had trouble finding .22LR rimfire ammo in the past year. Ammo supply will be better in the future, so you will be able to buy .22 ammo in most gun and ammunition stores.

By the way, you can expect to see more well-stocked online ammo stores in the coming years. Gun Forest is a good example of a website where you can find everything from rifle scopes and gun racks to M1A magazines and pistol safes.

New Firearms and Guns

In 2020, plenty of new guns will enter the sports gun and hunting market. The same is true for defensive guns. A growing number of guns will be shipped with pre-installed optics. Aside from new models, there will be more lightweight options as well as unusual action types like revolver carbines and lever action shotguns.

Listed below are some of the new guns that will be very popular in 2020:

  • Alfa Proj Double-Action Revolver
  • Black Aces Tactical Pro Series L 12GA Lever Action Shotgun
  • Charles Daly .410 Double-Barrel Field Shotgun
  • KSA 91/30 Mini Mil-Surp Rifle
  • Heritage Rough Rider Rancher 22LR Revolver Carbine

More and More Women Will Participate in Shooting Sports

Shooting sports are growing in popularity with women, which is why we will see more female shooters at the shooting ranges in the future. This trend is of great importance to the sports gun industry.

While the majority of women decide to buy a gun for home or personal protection, a good number of women say that they enjoy shooting with family or friends. Not only does the participation of women in shooting sports grow rapidly, but their achievements regarding accuracy and speed are impressive.

Final Thoughts

Even though it is hard to predict the future, these trends will no doubt dominate 2020 when it comes to shooting sports. They will have a great influence on both the shooting sports and gun market in the years to come. What other trends are going to affect the future of shooting sports? Only time will tell.
