Great publication and program. I look forward to reading it when I see it in my e-mail box!!! Keep up the great work and thanks for all you do on behalf of the shooting sports.
I look forward to your updates all the time, please keep them coming.
I'm very pleased to see the TFS magazine on-line. It's well done and very informative. Nice job!!
I am a relatively new Garand collector, and I could
not have been happier to see that a newsletter is available online now. I am
developing an insatiable appetite for anything Garand, and the newsletter fits
the bill. Keep up the good work!!
The first shot email mag. is very informative, keep it coming.
As always, great job on this publication. Particularly liked reading about Dan
Jordan. I'm in rehab and love seeing things like this. Shows the others you
just have to get out there and make the effort.
Can't believe I haven't pulled up "The First Shot" before this. I"ve been back and forth on the CMP Forum for a couple of years! This year - 2004 - was my first Garand Shoot after waiting for...20 some years. It was terrific! The staff, the facilities, the organization, scheduling, most of all the fellow shooters...made it a memorable time. My wife went with me and she is already asking if I"ve made plans!
