Closest thing to us is a 2 hr drive for mpsa matches/pistol or a 3 hr drive to Talladega. I just have to believe there are a lot of people out there like me who if they ever had been exposed to this earlier would be regular participants. This is a sport that can last you a lifetime unlike your baseball or football career. Wish I had been taken to a match as a teenager back when I could see and back when I reloaded.

My advice would be to be the change you want to see. Have you looked into setting something up in your area for kids to join that might get CMP support?
