But, the main point, is how many people have read this, through out, all of the USA?

Though words mean nothing, unless people read them and value them.

The only way to get people to read, though words, is to get them out in the public. You think people search us out, looking for old guns that only fire one shot at a time?

Our guns and sport need to be promoted to entice people to own one, shoot it because, they are truly accurate and beautiful.

That's what Coors and the Schuetzenfest did, that was why they were popular, at that time. SS's had been gone, a long time when that event started and it was that event, that caused the resurgence of them. They have left the public's eye again but, could be brought back again, too!!!

It also benefits collectors, too by bringing up demand and there for the value.

The Coors Schuetzenfest match was moved to Raton and with a financial contribution from the Coors Company, as well as generous individual ISSA member support. The "Coors Range" was built and the ISSA assumed the leadership roll. That Schuetzenfest event has been held every year since the Coors Range was completed in 1995. Yet you keep talking about bringing it back when it still already exists and has done so since 1995.

In regards to why the Coors Match was moved and ISSA assumed leadership please take the time to read the below.

In 1993, with a local law suit threatening to close the Golden range and a change in Coors management policy ending schuetzenfest sponsorship, that year’s Schuetzenfest was held at a private range in South Dakota. That same year the ISSA was founded to assume leadership and continue sponsorship of the International Schuetzenfest. The ISSA also serves as the governing body for rules plus continues sponsoring the various regional schuetzenfests which have been established across the mid and western U.S. and Canada.

For one who is not even going out to support your own group what even prompted you to say such a thing. How many of those do you know who are no longer with us or might not even be able to carry on. You seem to do nothing other than to complain but we also don't seeing you doing what you continue to preach about that you feel needs to be done. You put it all on the backs of the ASSRA and the ISSA why you continue to sit back behind your computer screen waiting for someone else to do what you have no intentions of doing yourself? I apologize to this group for having to bring it up but I am also on my way out due to individuals just like this who are hell bent on trying to ruin it by continually putting the blame on everyone else.
