SHOOTER’S NEWS Website of the Month Jonathan Craig began shooting in 2001. From Jonathan: “I started looking around for applications that would print targets so I could shoot the target I wanted. The only applications available were just collections of PDF files with limited printing options. Being a software engineer, I decided to write my own, and TargetExpress was born.” TargetExpress offers 500+ targets designed to print from your computer including IPSC, IPDA, NRA-style, ISSF, Law Enforcement, 100- and 200-yard MOA sighting targets, 50-yard smallbore and 25-yard pistol targets, as well as a “TargetWizard” for creating your own. Hi-quality vector drawn targets ensure crisplooking prints. Most targets have three print versions: Regular black, ink-saving gray and hi-visibility orange. TargetExpress even has a reduced target option to make properly scaled targets for close range practice. For targets larger than 8.5 x 11 inches, TargetExpress will print tiled pages that can be taped together. Download the full working software for a 20-day free trial, after which you can register TargetExpress for $14.95. New Camp Perry Print The NRA Competitive Shooting Division contracted with military art legend Dick Kramer for a one-of-a-kind print, featuring shooters and landmarks from the National Pistol Championship at Camp Perry. Available in two sizes—18 x 24 and 12 x 19 through the NRA Program Materials Center. Visit go/product.aspx?productid=PerryPistolPrint , or call (800) 336-7402. Shotgun News At the October 2010 NSCA National Championships in San Antonio, TX, Brad Kidd, Jr., walked away with what may be considered the most prestigious and difficult title in sporting clays. After outshooting nearly 1,200 competitors and a winning score of 273/300, Kidd is only the second shooter in NSCA history to have won the National Title in Open, Junior and Sub Junior classes. $150 Million Milestone In the 18 years since its creation in 1992, NRA Foundation’s Friends of NRA program has raised $150 million through its grassroots efforts. These grants, half of which remain in the state that raised them, support a variety of programs including youth and women’s shooting, safety training and range management.
