I have to say things went pretty good at the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation shoot. This year, the CSF arranged an a''-star shoot — three Democrats versus three Republicans — on a special course of two sport clays stands, a round of skeet and an abbreviated round of trap. It's going to be an excellent show!
I also talked to Jeff Crane, the President of CSF, about our little dust-up with the USFS, and we're now officially on their agenda. I also talked to Doug Painter, head of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, and a whole slew of legislators, including Tom Tancredo, who doesn't exactly have a reputation as a shrinking violet. I'll be talking to his office tomorrow about our next step in stopping this witch-hunt fiasco.
I hope to see all you guys tomorrow night in Boulder at the last public pillorying...er, meeting...so we can see which lies, mistruths and dribbling nonsense — remember, don't speak to the rangers...they're only there to listen! — the Forest Service reps will be serving up. Friday afternoon Col. Brown and I will huddle with the Powers-That-Be at the NRA in Milwaukee to hopefully develop a comprehensive strategy in dealing with anti-gun attacks of this sort.
As they used to say in the old Students for a Democratic Society, "Dare to struggle; dare to win!"
BTW, it looks as if the OLN-cancelled Shooting USA will eventually find a home at The Outdoor Channel. Welcome aboard, Mr. Scoutten...maybe we can exchange "impossible shots!"
