2011 FSED for MA Legislators a great success!
5/20/2011, N. Leominster Rod & Gun Club,
GOAL’s 3rd Annual Firearms Safety and Education Day for MA Legislators and their staff continues to receive high praise from attending legislators and staffers.
Gun Owners’ Action League’s Executive Director, James Wallace enthusiastically greeted the many MA Legislators and their staff who, unfazed by a cold and cloudy Spring day showed up in droves to participate in the shoot. After a safety briefing and presentation by GOAL’s Director of Education Jon Green, the assembled legislators and their staffers were split into groups and went on their way to shoot and participate in some great firearms related activities.
The firearms options available were many and included, shooting skeet, trap, a slew of handguns ranging from .22 cal revolvers, to compact carry guns to a Smith & Wesson “Bone Collector”, a few even dared to try it! Also available and very popular were many types of rifles including a Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22, Auto Ordnance M1 Carbine and Tommy Gun, and of course the ever popular Smith & Wesson M&P 15’s which were fitted with ACOG sights, these proved to be extremely popular with the legislators, many of which had great fun ringing the gong that was 200 yards away!
As always, the legislators left the day with a new appreciation for firearms, and an education in not only their responsible use, but to how fun they are.
GOAL would like to extend a huge thanks to Kahr Arms/Auto Ordnance, Smith & Wesson, Winchester, The North Leominster Rod & Gun Club, and all of the incredible firearm instructors that made GOAL’s 2011 Legislative FSED possible. Thanks again, we look forward to next year!
