Yes we do. When shopping for a house having a school that had a participation in things like this and an active bass fishing club were important to us. If my kids decide its not for them, fine but I want them to go to a school where they are encouraged to do these activities

My son shot trap for the high school team for 4 years. Anyone associated with a Sportsman club that allows these kids to shoot should be proud of what they do and how much they help these kids. There were 5-6 clubs that the team shot at throughout the season and each one of the clubs welcomed the kids and parents and were gracious with their time and facilities. Thank you.

Couple of us from our club had some shooting sessions for 4 or 5 young men several yrs ago. We had a fight w/ the other team sports, football and basketball.. To each his own.

The 4 that did shoot regularly for Jan thru April were great to work w/ and we all enjoyed it. Where are they today??? have not seen any of them around, probably married by now.

We had a "Gun Club" when I was I high school (north Detroit suburb early '70's) and we'd do gun safety, go to the range once a month. Padoka told us if we don't have a case then wrap a blanket and not just walk down the street carrying a shot gun. He locked them in his closet.

Yes, we need more leagues and clubs for the kids. And more mentors!!!

We had a trap shooting league in high school in the 1970's. We would reload Winchester AA's and shoot our father's Remington 1100. And compete against other high school teams. I can remember one night with snowing and hitting 23 out of 25 clays in trap in a beautiful snowfall with no wind like it was a picture in my mind. Even today I can picture the scene. It was beautiful.
