This last week they held the Iowa High School Trap Shoot at Cedar Falls Ia.

They had over 4000 participants and the only mention of it was a 1 minute piece on TV. At least that is all I saw.
No paper covered it in my area.

The first time I Googled it, it came back as a bunch of kids shooting other kids.

Now how can you get that out of "Iowa High School Trap Shoot"?

Obviously they have an agenda, and anything positive to do with guns is not on it.

But, I'm not sure they are fooling those kids. They know and now see the media's bias when it comes to reporting news.

They also see that there were over 4000 kids shooting for almost a week and they were having a ball.....and most importantly, they know that they can have fun shooting guns and that is not all blood and gore like the media portrays it.

And not one person shot!

Kind of a sad way to have to win, but the fact that it wasn’t covered in a negative light is at least some thing.

Why would MSM report anything positive about guns when their objective is specifically to brain wash the entire population into thinking all guns are bad and all people that shoot are potential murderers, the MSM is totally out of control.

The IA State SCTP High School shoot was a great success again this year. It was hot and we had a few kids succumb to the heat. Overall the kids did a great job and put up some impressive scores. I haven’t seen the final numbers yet, but heard early in the week that there were about 3600 kids and 4200 entries. The 600 difference would be the handicap and doubles events on Thursday. Somewhere north of 700,000 targets.

That is an full five axle truck load of shells. 25 pallets 112 cases per. That a jag. Ammo that wasn't shot 10 years ago. Nice to know where it going. Or I should say where it is.
Ammo and reloading supplies is just as hard to find here as it is everywhere else.

Every Presidential election cycle ammo and supplies seem to dry up so I bought enough last year for this years shooting. I sure hope it gets better before the shooting year is over.
