For the past couple years, we have sponsored the Manchester Pistol Prodigies. Now, since the season is over, I can tell you… the Manchester Pistol Prodigies did really well in the realm of competitive shooting this past year. The team made it all the way to the 2017 National Championships! Congratulations everyone! The Manchester Mirror posted an article about the Pistol Prodigies heading to Nationals this summer — it’s a good read if you’re interested.
What a fantastic group of kids. And of course, they are headed up by a set of awesome coaches too. There’s nothing more important than good leadership when you are teaching youths about responsible gun handling. And every time I’ve been around the Pistol Prodigies, I can tell that they have been taught to be safe and responsible when handling firearms, and it carries over to other aspects of life too. I can tell you from personal experience that these kids are top notch. Nowhere else do I get so many “thank you for taking our photos” and polite comments from clients who are still youths.
The Manchester Pistol Prodigies are a local team associated with the Michigan Scholastic Action Shooting Program, whose goal is this:
SASP is designed to instill in young people a set of personal values and character traits for fair play, compassionate understanding, individual responsibility, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and personal commitment. As the sport itself, these qualities will stay with them throughout their lifetimes, helping each young athlete reach his or her full potential.
