I shoot almost every weekend and I see new shooters (young and old) at almost every shoot. I see families that have children just starting to shoot.

That's great! not what I've seen in past years though.

Wildman1, where do you shoot?  There are new shooters fairly often around here, not every match.  But there are a few interested visitors watching most matches.  I think we will continue to get some old farts like us who also grew up on the westerns but simply couldn't get started due to their jobs or other responsibilities, but once they retire they can start playing.

Unfortunately, Collectively, we are NOT getting enough influx of new shooters to keep the Game at it's current levels.  Just ain't gonna happen.  Boo Hisssssssss

I work part time at our county shooting range in La Luz, NM, once a bright spot for SASS along with Ruidoso. This is the heart of Billy the Kid country. I see five, six or seven show up for the monthly match. Less than five and they quietly put all the stuff back in the conex box. The boys and girls are tired. They gave up on SASS affiliation some time back. I can only tell what I see.

My home state use to be a hotbed of CAS activity.  I was able to shoot every weekend and not have to drive more than an hour at most.  CAS clubs everywhere.  Now I only get one match a month.  for the other match, I have to go out of state.

CAS clubs have dried up and blown away just like Fall Leaves.

Well I suppose we're lucky in central Texas, I can still shoot every weekend, and sometimes Sundays as well.  Closest is 30 miles, furthest 105.  Plus no shutting down for winter.

We usually have a choice of 2 sometimes 4 different clubs to shoot at every weekend. One range we frequent has 2 clubs and we now can shoot there every weekend although two of the shoots are WB.

A look at SASS Affiliated Clubs in Florida, reveal's  if one wanted to,  they could shoot every weekend, both days somewhere.
Granted travel would be involved some 200+ miles.
I used to shoot with the Weewahootee Vigilance Committee (25 miles north)
 and Okeechobee Marshals (about 60 miles south ) but that was a decade ago.





when planets align...do the deal !
