Yesterday marked the Fourth Annual NRA Veterans Day Shoot at the Headquarters Range. As well attended as ever, the evening opened up with a welcome from NRA President David Keene, Executive Director of General Operations Kayne Robinson and NRA Boardmember Dennis Willing.
"Having you here gives us an opportunity to say thanks," Keene told the veterans. "This is your range and tonight is our way of thanking you what you've done for this country."
"Military and Law Enforcement make up a very important part of our membership," said Robinson. "Even old, retired military guys like me."
Soon enough, everyone headed out to the range. With choices ranging from a .22 pistol to a .357 revolver to Mossberg 510 to a HK 91 .308, there was plenty to keep the volunteer range officers busy. Rotating from station to station, everyone in attendance had the chance to shoot everyone in the house. Then came the raffle.
