From The Taft Independent:

The Taft Sportsmen

The Taft Sportsmen's Club was the recent recipient of over $20,000 in grants from the NRA Foundation. The NRA Foundation is a non-profit organization which raises funds for local and national firearms related projects through their Friends of NRA dinner events.

The Taft Sportsmen's Club was awarded a $5800 grant for their annual junior pheasant hunt generally held in November. This is the eighth year that the NRA Foundation has awarded the TSC a grant for their pheasant hunt.

TSC President Tom Brown stated, "This grant has been instrumental in helping provide for our junior pheasant hunt. We are really appreciative of all of the volunteers that make the hunt successful, but the NRA grant money is the reason the birds are in the air."

Brown also had praise for the LaserShot system the NRA Foundation provided a grant for last year. The LaserShot training system is available at the junior pheasant hunt and at the quarterly hunter's safety courses and is an excellent tool for teaching proper firearms safety.

President Brown said, "We needed an upgrade to some new software for the Lasershot system and the NRA Foundation provided us with an additional $2750 this year. With those funds we could update the software, get a few new guns, and even an archery system for training."
