:It's time for gun clubs to stop running scared. It's time to invite your neighbours & friends for an introductory 'shoot' at your gun club. We do and membership has grown! They aren't obligated to join after, but many at the FHRC do. They leave with a new outlook on the sport. It's time to loose the clandestine, secret society attitude.
Take pride in what we do. If someone asks me about my weekend at work on Monday, I tell them about target shooting. Some look surprised, ( the few that seem apalled can go to ......) but most are genuinely interested and I tell them about it and set them straight about the law. Far too many people watch too much U.S. T.V.
Patrick hit the nail on the head. It's time to stand up & be counted.
