  1. It was a blast!!

    It was great seeing everyone today.

    Thanks for coming.

  2. You lost me when children were being exploited by shooting guns to promote this fundraiser.

    Is it our goal to raise the children in McHenry County in a state of fear and violence like the children who live on the South Side of Chicago?

  3. Skeet shooting is a very old and highly regarded sport.

    What does bashing each other if football teach them??

  4. Pearl lady,

    To compare law abiding citizens, young and old, enjoying a beautiful summer day at a gun club to south side crime is appalling.

    Passing on an a tradition as American as Independence Day, baseball and apple pie is a wonderful thing as well as a great life lesson for young people.

    To some how liken such an event to anything negative is incorrect.

    Firearms are tools.

    It is much better to teach the proper and safe uses for the tool, rather than be fearful through ignorance.

  5. Pearl lady

    Look up the club itself and you will see it is a very highly regarded club.

    Many family events and members.

    It is not what you say or think it is.

  6. Skeet shooting is a sport just the same as archery.

    I am happy to see this girl getting the property safety instructions and learning the
    sport.

  7. Pearl Lady — when you teach children at the proper age how to shoot & the respect of guns and the sport of skeet shooting, target shooting, THOSE are the kids who grow up to NOT become violent or misuse guns like those in Chicago!

    I was of your mindset many years ago until I learned to target & skeet shoot.

    Try it – you just might like it!

  8. Well supervised children enjoying shooting sports.

    I don’t see how that’s a bad thing.

    Children shooting each other on the street is a shame our society need to fix.

    I don;t know statistics but I’m sure there are almost no deaths a very injuries, if any. from shooting skeet.

    The difference is as great as having a kid in a boxing or martial arts class and having a kid out playing the knockout game.

    They may look a bit a like.

    But one is a sport, the other is a crime.

    Wish I could have made it there myself.

  9. Pearl lady needs to come to an event and do some research on skeet shooting.

    The kids all did well!

    They had a blast!

    Proper gun safety doesn’t make kids violent or fear guns, for one reason, it educates them on what to do if they were to find a loaded gun.

    They know how to handle it and alert an adult to the gun.

    Education and safety is the key.

    The McHenry County Sportsman Association holds youth shoots.

    They did one for the local homeschoolers and it was a huge success.

    There were 18 kids in attendance.

    The instructors are excellent!

    The kids and the parents that attended the youth shoot all said they would do it again.

    They also have what is called Newcomer shoots for adults.

  10. I would like to say, good work on teaching the young lady how to shoot trap.

    I hope this is something she considers for the future.

    Finally, putting on a fund raiser by shooting trap is a great idea.

  11. Training young people in the safe and proper use of firearms instills confidence, respect for firearms and personal responsibility.

    None of these things could be considered exploitation and each of them in turn help to eliminate the irrational fear that some people have towards firearms.

  12. Pearl Lady – It is the goal of our education system to raise our children in McHenry County in a state of fear and violence of firearms by people who have zero education in firearm safety.

    Our teachers are not required to take firearm safety and they teach from a point of emotion and are not grounded in reality.

    I know what goes on in our schools – I can only assume you do as well.

    They only teach fear because of the liberal bias in school.

    But it wasn’t always this way.

    Back in the day there used to be skeet teams.

    The education system needs to stop exploiting our kids for their social agenda.
