I see where you have it loaded for the game shooter again.
Why don't you just leave the OSTA to their own thoughts and plans. After you take out expenses not much left for charity. Why wouldn't the OSTA just give the charity $500, the charity would get more it would cost the OSTA less. If the OSTA just wants to give $$$ to WW then I'm in for $100 and I'll bet many other shooters will opt in and they would raise a lot more than this lame event.
You can find a much better VET organization to support. Research "Wounded Warriors" and you'll find out that just a little more than 50% of the money raised goes to the vets, the rest is used for promotion and operation expenses.
I like the idea, but not the recipient.
Let me ask are you doing this for the "WOUNDED WARRIORS" or not? if you are you should make it where everyone will have a good time shooting in it. You go moving back to shooting in the parking lot your only going to find maybe a hand full of shooters that will even show up. I don't mind the 3 hole targets but back pass the 27yd line you can count me out. Sorry !
I see we have a few of you who want little girly girl targets and a trophy because you participated.I would be willing to bet you would be afraid to show how poorly you really shoot if it were to happen.
I can hold my own shooting trap and Dr. Longshot knows it, but I will not go any farther back than the 27yds. Besides I don't think you will even get the Cardinal Center to go along with anything pass the 27yds anyway. You have to think safety for not only you but others that are there, plus its Raising money for Wounded Warriors and you want people to come and shoot and have a good time.
If Dr.Longshot wants a long range shoot then he should step up and say that's is what he wants and not bring the Wounded Warriors in to this.
I am sorry but the Wounded Warriors is not something to joke around about you never know some of them may even come and shoot in it if its run right.
no names were mentioned nor how far back to shoot just simply stating puffy targets are a waste of time kinda like watching grass grow.i agree its nothing to take lightly no charity event should ever be.If run right it would generate $$ and may attract more potential shooters.1 day event with a few different events would in my opinion attract a decent crowd.doubles from 20 yds or handicap with 7/8 ounce a little bunker trap and possibly bunker buddy shoot.lots of options with safety in mind.
Do you want the wounded warriors to participate in the shoot? Or just honor them with a fund raiser? If you want them to join in give them and maybe all veteran a handicap, maybe shoot one or two yards closer. Just an idea. You might also want to contact the V.F.w's and American legends
Doc, At least you are trying. Don't let the negatives deter you. They suggest a games shooter with 1- 1/8 @ 1200 fps would have an advantage. How? When everone
is shooting the same shells! A Bunker buddy would be great if you draw for partners. Unlike Jaqua's who lets the All Americans buddy up and then shoot it twice.
Zar, I heard the same thing. They will take the donation, but will not publicly support a shooting event. I checked their website, policy and programs and it says nothing about being anti-gun, but it should be confirmed.
