NRA's involvement with the Boy Scouts of America's shooting sports program has grown tremendously over the past few years, so it's only natural that we would include a Boy Scout and a Venture Scout in our selection for the 2012 Brownell's/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors program. Bryan Wendell, Senior Editor of Scouting magazine, recently featured the selection of two young men to serve as Abmassadors and represent the shooting sports and scouting.
Two Scouts named NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors
Many young men and women have their first experience firing a rifle or shotgun in the Boy Scouts of America. But earning these two merit badges is only the beginning.
The BSA’s partnership with the National Rifle Association has extended into national jamborees, weekend activities, and countless summer camps.
Both the BSA and NRA want the same thing: to teach young men and women how to properly and responsibly engage in shooting sports.
That’s why two of the six Brownell’s/NRA National Youth Shooting Sports Ambassadors for 2012 come from the BSA’s ranks.
Three cheers to 17-year-old Boy Scout Will Turner from Matthews, N.C. (left), and 20-year-old Venturer Josh Nolan from Dawsonville, Ga (right).

Congratulations to Will and Josh for being chosen as 2012 Ambassdors, and stay tuned for profiles on all our 2012 Ambassadors and stories about their upcoming trip to SHOT Show.
