Fnh Usa Donates Fns Pistols To Summit

Recommended Posts

May, 2015

FNH USA donated fifteen 9mm pistols consisting of their FNS-9 Standard and FNS-9 Compact models to the Marksman program at Bechtel Summit. Nice.

Similarly two years ago, Sig Sauer donated 70 custom engraved pistols to the Bechtel summit for the 2013 Jamboree. The seventy consisted of 54 Mosquito (22 caliber) and 16 P250 (likely 9mm but other calibers possible).

Hopefully all Summit BSA firearms including these 85 donated pistols have been maintained and are in a secure location in the Summit area, all ready for scouts to learn marksmanship in the coming years.

When it rains, it pours...

 

As you know, water guns are only BSA approved to shoot at targets and likely only after a scout has undergone 5 days of safety lectures. So this got old Schiff thinking about a bankrupt traveling carnival (they were having a hard finding employees with new background check laws... :unsure:). So why not recycle their "water targets" and set up at a pilot range at the Summit. But...

ran into some problems. First problem, "BSA policies prohibit the use of targets resembling any living thing." and it was quickly apparent that the bottom targets resemble some folks living in Irving.  The second problem was the price tag. a proposed Summit shooting range has to be in the millions of dollars so I looked at Coney Island and DisneyWorld but their water gun venues all appear to have attendees shooting at each other, a no-no. :D

 

By endurance we conquer.
