In fact, here's a copy of a report she filed for her 4-H book back in 2001.

Get outside with the family and have fun learning firearms safety at Brownells/NRA Days

Landon Fellhoelter of Ness City, Kansas takes a shot at Camp Thunder on NRAblog

Fairfax, Virginia - It's June and the weather is hot - there's no denying it. But this is what you were wishing for during the cold winter, so you might as well make the most of it. If you're looking for some outdoor fun this month, put on some breathable clothes, slap on some sunscreen and make your way to one of the great Brownells/NRA Day events held across the country.

Put together by people in your community, Brownells/NRA Days are family-oriented events for Second Amendment supporters of all ages to have some safe outdoor fun.

NRA Days all have the same goal of shooting sports fun, but not each one is the same. They're based on themes that dictate what activities are held and the firearms present. A NRA Day one weekend could be completely different from one a week later in the same state. But you'll still have a fun time and meet great people. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a first-timer, you're guaranteed to enjoy the experience.
