    Recently Todd Bender rolled out his "Hundred for a Hundred" campaign for the 2012 shooting season. Todd will donate $100 for every perfect 100 straight that he shoots in competition to the Navy SEAL Foundation, and Todd has encouraged all of his clients and friends in the shooting community to pledge a matching amount, or any amount based on the number of 100 straights that he shoots during 2012. To date, based on an average of 35 100x100s of the year, Todd has raised a projected $40,000 for the Foundation.



    The Navy SEAL Foundation provides tragedy assistance for families who have lost a loved one in training or combat, and award scholarships and provide educational assistance to active duty personnel, their spouses, and children. On any given day, throughout the world, members of the Naval Special Warfare Community put their lives on the line to defend our freedom.



    Our goal is to push the donation towards $100,000 for 2012. But we need your help. You can contact Todd directly at bendershima@aol.com for more details on this fundraising drive and how to direct funds from Todd Bender to the Foundation. Please band together with Todd, to support those who give the ultimate sacrifice to support us.



    I believe Todd also provides free skeet lessons to the "Wounded Warrior's" Foundation -- they provide guns, ammo and targets free to those vets who have sustained injuries and/or wounds in the service of our country.

    I'll go along with that. Who wants to donate a $100 for every 100 straight I shoot in trap? Any takers?

    No worry, your money will be safe.

    If you read a bit more carefully you will see that other shooter's are donating a certain amount to the effort based on how many 100x100 Todd shoots -- that's in addition to the anticipated $3,500 Todd is contributing on his own.

    To really make it simple, the other anticipated $36,500 will come from other skeet shooters which actually impresses me more than a no-cost, pro-forma "thank you for you service".

    It's easy to rip on skeet shooter's but if you have both trap and skeet at your club, ask the puller's which they'd rather work --- you may be suprised.

    And yes, 100x100 in singles would be to much but how about 200x200 in singles, 100x100 in doubles or 100x100 in handicap would be a more manageable number.

    Are you a Big Dog or do you know one --- ask him what he or she thinks? $100 is probably to much for trap because of the number of events shot but $20 or $25 wouldn't make a big dent and if someone wanted to contribute based on a Big Dog's performance $5 or $10 shouldn't make you go bare-foot.

    Think of the positive press especially is a State Association or ATA BOD got involved we could blow the skeet shooter's out of the water.

    Of course it's easier and cheaper just to make fun of someone else's efforts.
