Northern California Boy Scouts receive shotgun merit badge equipment from NRA Foundation grant
Fairfax, Virginia - Boy Scout Troop 1855 of Folsom, California, now has equipment for its shotgun merit badge program thanks to a NRA Foundation grant.
The troop, which formed in the 1990s through a group of parent volunteers, applied for the $8,500 grant to purchase shotguns, ammunition, clay targets, an electric thrower, and all the necessary safety equipment like eye and ear protection - in other words everything you need for some shotgun sports fun. Money for the grant was raised by members of the community at local Friends of NRA banquets, grassroots events for the shooting sports that bring firearms enthusiasts together for a night of fun, food, and fundraising.
