In a 'man bites dog' kind of story, the Globe presents youth trap shooting in a positive light:

The print version is in the Metro West section only, I got my picture in the paper! The reporter was nice but totally clueless about guns and wouldn't try

MILLIS - It’s a place you could easily miss. At the end of a narrow, winding road off busy Route 109 is the Fin, Fur and Feather Club, a favorite spot for fans of what are called “the shooting sports.’’

And they’re not all driving pickup trucks with gun racks on the roof. Many are relying on Mom and Dad for transportation, because the club is producing some of the state’s best young trapshooters.

The FFF Hot Shots first varsity squad recently won its third straight Scholastic Clay Target Program title at the Massachusetts State Open Trap Championships, and is getting ready for the national SCTP championships July 18-23 in Sparta, Ill. Later in the summer come the National Junior Olympics in Colorado Springs, Colo...SNIP

Make sure you look at the photo gallery on the left for a picture of yours truly....

On the 16 yard line, shootin' for the Lewis!
I'm sure that the "W" word was an editorial decision, not used by the FFF people.

I did a double-take when I saw the article in the Glob this AM.....

I've said before, this is exactly the sort of coverage that we (the shooting community) needs. If your club hosts an event even if it's just a Boy Scout camp-out where they get to use .22s, the local (or bigger) media should be alerted.

If we stay hidden the Nons will have no cue about what we do...the Antis won't, either, but won't care....

Overall, a nice article. How did the Hot Shots do at the NH State Shoot?
