Members of the Missouri Scholastic Pistol Team enjoy pistols paid for with NRA grants

Fairfax, Virgnia - Most people only see one side of the Friends of NRA program — the side that brings together a collection of local Second Amendment supporters for an evening of games, auctions, drawings and a meal. That's when they discover that the doctor down the street, the architect in their office building or their kids soccer coach is part of the NRA experience too.

Smith & Wesson Safety Hammerless also known as New Departure and Lemon Squeezer

A Smith & Wesson Hammerless Revolver attributed to Teddy Roosevelt

Tulsa, Oklahoma - NRA Museums Director Jim Supica made the most of the few days he spent at last month's Tulsa Arms Show. He inspected a few hundred guns, walked almost ten miles of displays, and recorded nearly 20 episodes of Curator's Corner for Cam & Company on Sportsman Channel. Given the vast quantities of firearms at his disposal, you have to wonder why he'd choose such a teeny-tiny gun like the Smith & Wesson Safety Hammerless?

Besides the fact that it was the property of the President of the United States of course.

Fairfax, Virginia - Thousands of NRA events kick off every year. We're talking rifle competitions, basic pistol classes, gun range evaluations, Refuse to be a Victim seminars and more.

That's why we make a point of attending event close to home — like the Women on Target clinic yesterday at the Arlington Fairfax Chapter of the Izaak Walton League.

"Izaak Walton is kind enough to hold a Women on Target clinic every Mother's Day Saturday," said Diane Danielson, NRA's Women On Target Instructional Shooting Clinic Coordinator. "And every year it gets better and better."
