Gearing Up for States

I'm swamped doing some work for Rob (investigating PEOs) and getting the kids ready for the state shoot this weekend. Packing, shopping, checking ammo, cleaning firearms -- ah, the life of an NRA mom.

Please offer up a little prayer for us, as two of the kids woke up with low grade fevers this morning. (Apologies to Peter and Susan whose kids played with mine for hours on end yesterday.) I'd hate for anyone to miss competition on account of sickness.

Here's a tidbit to think about while I'm away. Did you know that shooting sports is the safest type of sport? Yep, safer than football, soccer, tennis and so on.

Makes since. It isn't a contact sport. As long as safety is used (as with anything else), I don't see where much could happen.
You are aiming AWAY from everybody else and if it is like the JROTC range at my high school, the target is 50 feet away with walls wrapped around it to keep any stray bullets from hurting anyone.
