    We seem to be getting an influx of new shooters,and never before gun owners, arriving at our club. I think this is great-and our members go out of their way to make them welcome. We lend guns-show them proper gun handling-shooting advice-and so forth. Is it just us? Or are other clubs witnessing this also? Hope everyone goes out of thier way to welcome these people to shooting sports!! WE NEED THEM!!!

    We also have noticed an influx of new shooters here at Oxford Gun Club. Both trap and skeet are seeing new shooters, not so much with sporting clays.

    I am one of the new shooters. I used to shoot with my father when I was a kid, safety and correct gun handling was taught to me at a young age. Well he's gone now and I wanted to get back into shooting. I have a friend that is a member at the local club so I tagged along last month. I fit right in and met some great people, next thing you know I am buying a trap gun and searching for resonably priced ammo. I am looking forward to getting better and meeting new friends.
