NSSF Awards Grants To Colleges T Potterfields Donate $900,000 To SSSF hrough its Collegiate Shooting Sports Initiative, NSSF has awarded $299,200 in grants to 41 colleges and universities to assist in the development and expansion of shooting sports programs. Of those schools receiving assistance, 11 are developing new shooting clubs. “Throughout the country, we are seeing a surge in college students interested in the shooting sports. These clubs are filling a need on campus by providing opportunities to target shoot, and their members are building positive reputations for the shooting sports both on campus and in surrounding communities,” said Zach Snow, NSSF’s manager of shooting promotions. Grants ranged from $10,000 — an amount given mainly to schools whose programs are in the development stage — to smaller amounts to schools with established programs. “The NSSF grant has redefined the shooting experience and the entire community here at Radford. We have tripled the size of our team. Our members are outgoing and proudly represent the shooting sports. We are extremely grateful to NSSF. We could not have done it without their generosity,” said Blaine Morgan of Radford (Va.) University.

The newly designed LM8 (slick octagonal rail) platform redefines what a rail should be by giving you a rail that is smaller, slimmer, lighter and more maneuverable. In short, we’ve reduced the amount of gun that you have to carry, without sacrificing the reliability that you want and the knockdown power that you need. 8 Sides, Hundreds of configuration possibilities, 1 kick-a88 gun. ® B EC AUS E FAI LUR E IS NOT AN O P T IO N TOP RAIL POSITION mATChES m4 ANd E3-TyPE wEAPONS Phone: 309-732-9527 email@example.com www.lmtdefense.com www.shootingindustry.com FEBRUARY 2012 13
