Wesley from the NFOA sent us this letter and asked if we would include it in our newsletter if we had one or post it on our website. I did not see any reason why it would be objectionable (The NFOA works hard for our States rights in Nebraska). If you have any questions, or concerns about this post give me a call.
What is the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association?
Did you know that in Nebraska we have a local organization defending our rights as firearm owners? The Nebraska Firearms Owners Association (NFOA) is a non-profit organization run by volunteer members who are Nebraska gun owners just like you. Whether you’re a hunter, a competitive shooter, a gun collector, a self-defense advocate, or a concealed handgun permit holder, the NFOA provides a unified voice for all firearm owners in the state.
While there are other larger firearm owner groups and lobbyists fighting battles in DC at the federal level, the NFOA focuses specifically on monitoring the bills and legislation introduced here in the Husker State, testifying on these bills at the legislative committee hearings in Lincoln, and sending email alerts to members on bills that would affect their firearm rights. Every year in Nebraska, bills are proposed that affect firearm range protection, hunter rights, concealed carry laws, and self defense restrictions. Did you know last session a bill was blocked in the Nebraska legislature that would have given the State the power to dictate requirements (and penalties) on how your firearms must be stored in your home? Did you call your Senator to let them know whether you opposed that bill? NFOA members did.
There are no annual dues to be an NFOA member. So if you would like to join the NFOA and keep updated on firearm-related bills in Nebraska, you can signup online at www.nebraskafirearms.org/join and unite your voice with over 5,000 fellow Nebraskans to help protect your firearm rights here in our great state.

P.S. The September 4th plate shoot will be cancelled, as their was no one that would be around that weekend to run the shoot (Labor Day weekend).
Sunday, August 7, 2011
Plate shoot results:
Rimfire Auto: 1st Larry L. 2nd Brian K.
Centerfire Auto: 1st Larry L. 2nd Corey C.
Centerfire Revolver: 1st Larry L. 2nd Randy J.
Novice: 1st Brett C. 2nd Erin C.
As a matter of fact Mr. Larry lost only one head to head match up all day. Great shooting Larry!
Everybody shot well today, (barring one CF Revolver pairing where they were 1 cartridge away from both contestants having to run back to the benches for more ammo). The turnout wasn't great but it was alot of fun, with a lot of really good shooting. I would say in years to come we all better lookout because our novices turned in some good performances ( that is if their dad doesn't become ammo poor first [hmmm, kids were going to learn another fun past time called reloading :-) ]). It would be nice to see some more female shooters on the line in the future, we had 2 shooting today (Yes ladies, that is a challenge). I think everyone enjoyed the setup using steel plates instead of pins (barring that stupid lil 4" thing used for the championship final plate mumble mumble grrrr [on the bright side it gives me an excuse to do more shooting :-) ]).
I would like to say "THANK YOU" to everyone who participated, and to Larry for being match director.
Until next time, see you at the range.

There will be the following divisions:
Bring your wife or girlfriend/husband or boyfriend (I suppose you could bring both just remember there are firearms involved [Disclaimer: I/We are not held responsible if you decide to bring your wife and girlfriend to the shoot and things don't turn out like you envisioned it]), friends, kids and take part in the only sport endorsed by our Founding Fathers (before the historians in the crowd flame me, I am talking about shooting in general not necessarily pin shooting). Be sure to bring lots of ammo (and your firearms), water, snacks (vital if your bringing kids), eyes and ears (earplugs will be available if you don't have enough or forget them) for everyone. These shoots are always great fun, so bring the family and a have a great day at the range. For those of you who are new to shooting, come on out you are very welcome to join in. If you are you are worried about being a novice and afraid people will laugh at you, DON'T BE we all have a great time and there are experienced shooters who are always happy to help our new shooting friends. If you don't own a firearm and want to come out to see what this all about, you are welcome also.
See you at the range,
