What a Fantastic Day!!!

I had the pleasure of introducing 3 kids that never fired a gun before to the shooting sports... and they are HOOKED!

It was very refreshing to get to meet and talk to the parents. I even had one Mother tell me "My sons friends mother said it would be loud and it would sound like a war zone with the machine guns going off" She couldn't wait to go back to tell her how wrong she was. She learned so much from the Conservation Officer and the safety class. She even made a homemade turkey call with her son. I even got her information with "Woman on Target" and got her hooked up with the "Friends of the NRA"

Im not sure how she learned of our even or what brought her out, but having the opportunity to show what our sport is all about and hearing how much she has learned and how much her and her son enjoyed themselves made my day.
