The hosts of the inaugural Remington Great American Shoot have announced that the event raised almost $1.2 million for the Special Forces Charitable Trust (SFTC) and several other military non-profit organizations benefiting active duty service members and veterans.

The winner, former Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette, raised the most money ($150,130) of all shooters in attendance and was awarded a customized 2014 Jeep Rubicon at the conclusion of the event.

"I am so proud to announce we raised almost $1.2 million for the Special Forces Charitable Trust and other organizations," said Mike Reynolds, founder of the Remington Great American Shoot. "It was an amazing gathering of American men and women, ages 14 to 83. Grouping the civilians with 'the warriors' allowed us to show our profound appreciation and give something back to the United States Special Operations community and organizations like Special Forces Charitable Trust. It was truly great Americans doing a great thing. Remington's generosity in providing incredible prizes and all ammunition has allowed us to give back to deserving service members, veterans and their families."

The funds raised were distributed among the SFTC and other military charities. As the support host, the SFTC received the first $500,000 raised by the shooters, and the top five fund-raising teams divided remaining funds to military charities they were passionate about.
