That is GREAT news! I hope the sales continue to rise.:)

The quote of Jodi Valenta, director of recruitment and retention programs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation was the one that summed it up for me.

I see its the same paragraph that caught your eye as well.[up]

All the programs, and all of us coming together is going to make a huge difference.

Lets not forget my original point either though. Whether we grow by leaps and bounds, or dwindle into non-existance, we should police ourselves, making sure that we are always stepping in the right direction. Always projecting a positive light on our "sport".

Just on a side note; If anyone is curious as to why I put the word "sport" in quotations, its because I dont consider what we do a sport. What we do is a disipline, a necessary part of nature, a way of life!:)


(Ant, I edited the title so that more hunters would take a look at it. Its a good post and I think as many people as possible should see it) I hope you dont mind.:)
