No Bullets, No Shooting
from NRA-ILA
All gun owners are familiar with the 17th century maxim, "Keep your powder dry.” But if we expect to be gun owners in the 21st century, we have to update that to read, “Keep your powder—and all the rest of your ammunition—at all.” That’s because politicians who want to ban guns, but who don’t have the votes in Congress and state legislatures, are trying to achieve the same effect by banning the manufacture, importation, sale and possession of as much ammunition as possible, and severely restricting the rest.

Mentors for Young Key to Hunting's Future
from the Roanoke Times
When it comes to the importance of passing along their tradition, hunters talk a good game. If only we could be as successful with our actions. Proof is in the numbers. If we were more effective at recruiting and retention, hunter numbers wouldn't be sliding as steadily as they have during the past two decades.
