NSSF Survey on Shooting Sports Activity

The NSSF commissioned a survey that showed that users of the modern sporting rifle (AR-15 style rifles) were the most active in the shooting sports last year. About 8.9 Million people used modern sporting rifles in shooting sports on an average of 22.9 days during 2009.

It also showed that 2009 was a record year for all shooting sports activities, hitting a high water mark of 34.4 Million people who participated in one or more types of shooting sports activities overall.

The next time you head to the range, be sure to invite a friend along with you. The shooting sports are fun, I have brought many people with me, and have yet to find anyone who did not have a great time. As always, be sure to teach them the gun safety rules before you let them touch your gun. Have fun!

In the wake of watching Back to the future and Jetsons, I got this fantasy as an adolescent that some time or another we would all be owning an auto that can fly out of this world and park our Jet Engine Cars in our back yard, well I am energized today to see a great deal of these visionaries working enthusiastically towards making these youth dream a reality. check cashing corona
