A bright future in S.C.

While way too much of the country seems to be filled with nervous nellies wringing their hands about how to regulate guns out of the hands of responsible owners, South Carolina is working hard to get guns into the hands of responsible youth shooters.
Yesterday the South Carolina Youth Shooting Foundation had 309 shooters from 5th to 12th grade brave wind, rain, and temps in the 40's to shoot a 100 target Sporting Clays event. The shooting teams came from gun clubs, public and private schools, 4-H clubs and churches.
I took a squad through each rotation and had nary a whimper, even though I could see the kids were suffering. The only whining I heard was from the parents.

Keep up the great work!

Know that we appreciate your efforts, and thanks for helping to keep kids engaged in sporting firearms / shooting sports!

Education is just what we need to keep kids from being afraid of something that is merely a tool. Thanks!
