Cinqo de Mayo is Done; Plinko de Mayo Lives On

With May the Fourth Be With You and the weekend celebrations surrounding Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican-American version of St. Patrick’s Day, in our rearview mirror, hopefully the hangovers and upset stomachs from muchos tequila and over indulging on nachos and guac have finally subsided. Maybe the old noggin can even handle the soul jarring vibrations from a little recoil on the range.

But if you’re looking to still get in on a little soft shooting (think .22 rimfires here) that won’t upset the delicate balance your insides are still working to achieve, you can still take part in Aguila’s Plinko de Mayo celebration.

It’s a fun way to give a nod to the Mexican-inspired celebration (that honors a Mexican victory in one battle over the French, not the nation’s Independence Day) as well as to the top ammunition manufacturer in Mexico (and largest rimfire manufacturer in the world), Aguila.

Just grab some Aguila ammo, hit the outdoor range and have fun with some holiday-inspired targets from “balloons to piñatas and golf balls to hard Mexican candy” or anything virtually, snap photos of you and your friends and family having a good time, and post it on social media tagging @aguilaammo and any number of their hashtags they suggest on their Plinko de Mayo promo page.

Winners will be selected from those who post photos and can win a swag bag. The final day to post and win is May 10. But you can keep shooting, all year long!
