FIREARM INDUSTRY KEEPING SAFETY TOP PRIORITY AS FAMILIES BEGIN REUNITING

Firearm sales continue to be hot, even after a year of pandemic closures, civil unrest, elections and now the specter of gun control executive actions and legislation. The firearm industry, and those businesses that provide the means of exercising the Second Amendment, are working to ensure new firearm owners are welcomed, educated, and encouraged to practice safe storage and handling of their new purchases. This has always been a top priority and will remain so with more than 8.4 million first-time gun buyers last year and more joining the community each day.

CIVILIAN MARKSMANSHIP PROGRAM▸THE FIRST SHOT▸
By J. Nelson Shew, 79, of Lebanon, Oregon
My first year at Camp Perry was in 1970 as a member of the National Guard National Shooting Team. I have competed in 47 National Matches as a shooter and also a couple of years as a volunteer or coach. I shot mostly service rifle in highpower competition but did enter smallbore a couple of years. I have been a President’s 100 member (finishing in the top 100 of the President’s Rifle Match) 20 times and was the overall winner of the match in 1988. I was also the National Guard Service Champion numerous times.
