Shooting Club And Police Department Receive NRA Foundation Support

Your NRA is continuing to make a difference, extending assistance for youth shooting and law enforcement.

The police department in Brownsville, Texas, received three rifles through a $3,300 grant provided by The NRA Foundation. The Brownsville Herald reports that the gift consisted of two AR-10 rifles and one AR-15 carbine for the department’s SWAT team. 

In addition, according to The Buffalo News, a $3,000 grant was provided to the Ten-X Shooting Club in Lancaster, N.Y. This money is earmarked to set up a youth shooting program, which the club had previously lacked the money to form. Ten-X president Peter Vasilion acknowledged the grant as an investment in the local community’s young people.
