    At Home With Spokane's Amanda Furrer - Shooting Slideshows | NBC Olympics

    All I can say are these two things:

    #1 Check Pic #11 in the slide show.
    #2 If I had a son of the appropriate age, THIS is the gal I'd want him to date and eventually MARRY.

    There's a future Olympian shooting rifle at the private club I'm a member of in the Texas Hill Country. The area 4H , a great coach, and supportive parents make this possible. She is a quiet kid with amazing talent. It's terrific to see our young women achieving great things. They work hard for it.

    To be honest it's these young ambassadors that help sell the shooting sports as a great way to spend time with family.It definitely helps when you read positive things about firearms and shooting other than the tragedies created by a few people that give us a black eye

    Great example to point out when promoting shooting sports.

    It should encourage everyone to help in their own community whether at the local range/club, 4-H, school shooting program, or friends of the NRA to get more young people involved in the sport.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
