    Apparently not much went wrong, but quite a lot went right!

    High schools: Minnesota trap shooting group now a model.


    And:

    This is great. Missouri is starting to head in the same direction in some areas, we just need a more unified organization to guide it.

    This will never make the nationwide news but this is the epitome of what we should be trying to accomplish. My mother was terrified of guns until she attended a Youth Hunter Education Challenge match headed by the Department of Conservation. Seeing hundreds of kids safely and effectively using firearms changed her outlook completely.

    The Horrer!

    Awesome! My first thought was that must have been a ton of birds. How much fun could that have been? I got into trap shooting a couple years ago when I couldn't find .22 ammo and quickly became addicted. One day I hope to buy a nice over/under to do it proper.

    INI the 2015 European Games in Baku, (olympics, just for europeans, wich includes former sovjet union republics, israel, turkey...) Women Skeet gold medl was won by 17y old Amber Hill from the UK, who took up shooting at the age of 10, while Sara Hornung, an 18 yo from switserland took silver in 10 m air rifle, trailing just 0.1 point.

    so, when youngster are introduced early, but well educated the 4 rules, what could go wrong?
