WA: North Whidbey Sportsmen's Association


Although I no longer live on Whidbey Island I continue to maintain my membership in the North Whidbey Sportsmen's Association so that I always have a convenient place to shoot when I go visit family there. I also feel great about my membership because they continue to sponsor annual youth events like the shooting portion of the US Pony Club annual Tetrathlon.

I love seeing children experiencing a healthy exposure to the shooting sports. Once they learn about the rules of safe gun use & see how much fun the shooting sports are they are much more likely to have a desire to stay involved. Even if they don't they still will know how to be safe around guns & will be far less likely to fall for regurgitated lies by the likes of the Brady folks who attempt to perpetuate the myth that evil guns exist. There are evil people in the world, but there are no evil guns.

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about...kids having some FUN...AND learning responsibility.

(sure beats getting offed for a crack deal gone sour at the age of15, doesn't it?)

May be some HOPE for this old world YET, eh?

I think it's great to see young women involved. Much better than the people in society who tell them that guns are bad and they are better off being disarmed when facing potential attackers. I can't imagine many lessons better for a father to teach a daughter than how to properly use a firearm.
