Martin, Georgia - On a beautifully perfect Saturday morning, families from Martin, Georgia and surround communities gathered with their children for the Second Annual NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge. Greeted by Linda Barrett of Land & Lake Realty, they stood in line to register for the event. Bouncing around in anticipation, the little ones dug through a bag of goodies (including a gun safety lock and a t-shirt donated by the National Rifle Association) while mom and dad dealt with the forms. Today was going to be fun. According to Linda, more than 250 children arrived in time to join in that fun.

What if you did all of these in a row... while being timed... competing against dozens of others.
