FSSA President’s Comments
Happy Independence Day. We are surely blessed by the freedoms we have. One of those freedoms is the right to keep and bear arms, a fundamental right protected by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, part of the Bill of Rights, and by the constitutions of Florida and many other states. So, did you bear arms and go hunting, shoot some plates, or get that last practice in before going to a match? I hope you had a great day and no matter your shooting interests, thanks for keeping the Second Amendment going strong.
Thanks also for your support of your state association. FSSA is a state association that is doing good things for our members with the resources we have. Last month, we supported five grant requests from Florida's junior shooters totaling $2500.

NRA Women On Target
Gateway Rifle & Pistol Club
Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club (GRPC) hosted its fourth NRA Women On Target pistol clinic on May 11th. We had 12 ladies attend, most of whom had little or no firearms experience. Sue Carter was the Clinic Director, Ted Carter was the Range Safety Officer, and Larry Watkins served as the Chief Range Officer. The ladies learned firearms safety and range commands, and then moved into the basic fundamentals of shooting. They were split into two groups and took turns on the firing line on Range 1 at 7 and 15 yards. Each group spent 30 minutes learning to group their shots. They then came back to the line to try their new skills at a smaller target, and again at hanging plastic bottles. Finally, they had an opportunity to shoot and pop balloons.
