Sunday, November 15th is Veterans Appreciation Day at the Texas Firearms Festival [click here for tickets] at Best of the West Shooting Sports in Liberty Hill Texas (just NW of Austin). All prior and active U.S. military members receive a $5 discount on standard shooting tickets. (Veterans: send an email with any form of military ID to firstname.lastname@example.org.) For every Sunday standard shooting ticket sold, the Festival’s also donating five dollars to Veteran Outdoors, a charity that takes veterans hunting or fishing to help them assimilate back into society. But BEFORE that totally awesome day . . .
we’re sponsoring the Texas Veterans Shoot, also at Best of the West, on August 29th. The idea is simple: it’s a gathering of veterans to swap stories, compare weapons (so to speak) and shoot guns. Unlike the Festival, this is a BYOG (Bring Your Own Gun) and BYOA (Bring Your Own Ammo) event. Think of it as a warm-up for the Festival. If you’d like to attend, just show up with your military ID at BOTW at 0900 hours on the 29th. See you there!
