    A good friend of mine, who happens to be a long-time member of SET & a kick-ass gunsmith (and shall remain nameless at this point as I'm not sure I have his permission to post this request); has 3 kids that he is constantly supporting and mentoring as they work up through the ranks of 3-gun, USPSA, PRS and ICORE .... one of which has a bit of a disability, but continues to participate in the sport.

    Bottom line: I'm asking for SET members to donate anything they wish, even if it's fifty cents, to support these up and coming shooting enthusiasts, and ultimately also help out a fellow SET brotha. So are you in?

    In case I haven't convinced you so far, I'm going to drop a couple pics of his young shooters ... not that I'm trying to persuade you to stick a crowbar in your wallet and come off of 50 cents or anything....... ;)

    If you're still not convinced to donate 50 cents, then I have no hope for you .... you're a dirty bastard that couldn't come off of 50 cents and you should be ashamed of yourself! (I figured if guilt didn't work, maybe petty name-calling would get your attention) ...:noidea:

    In all serious though, thanks for reading this; if you want to donate, hit me up in PM and I'll provide my PayPal or Google Wallet info, all contributions will go to this fine member and his 3 children, don't you worry about that!

    Best regards,
    AirOps

    Is there a time limit? And would you take donations in Ammo, or stuff like that?

    Hell no sir, no time limit.
    If you'd like to send ammo, I can provide an address in PM and leave it up to y'all

    I have a ton of ammo at the house, its just that I won't be home until mid Dec. If you could come up with a list of items, needed/wanted that would help me out. :thumbsup:

    Yeah man, get up a list of equipment/ammo they need. Is there somewhere in particular they shop for Gear if we wanted to send a gift card?

    Let me know if they could use some gun care products(cleaner and lube). I am an AMSOIL distributor and can get them some of the products on my dime

    You guys are awesome, thanks for offering to help out!

    Here are some additional details I rcvd, edited a bit. As for shipping address, will get back to those asking in PM.

    "The largest expense by far is Ammo. Pistol consumption is 1500-2000 9mm 800-1200 .38 Short Colt per month. I reload so that helps, but still have to buy bullets, and Federal primers due to the tuning of their pistols. We have had to cut back on Rifle to 500-600 rounds a month, and typically 500 rounds of 20 & 12ga a month. This is just for 2 of the girls. (redacted) has just gotten to the point where she can do shooting sports, with the Aspergers she has had issues when she was younger with sensory overload. She shoots 4H rimfire, and PRS."

    "If folks want to donate ammunition, 55gr .223, 147gr 9mm, and 20&12ga shotshells are always needed. I typically buy 3,000 160gr Ibejihead Bullets (.356dia) at a time. Gift cards can be from Cabelas since they carry the primers and 147gr Xtreme 9mm pills. Honestly, (redacted) (the oldest) is the least equipped. She has a good Savage .308, but doesn’t have any gear, and is shooting a borrowed 10/22. She’s a bit behind, but will be my focus through spring. Between Armageddon Gear bags and sling, to range finder, Kestrel, and her 175gr SMK... well you can imagine. She is wanting a Clark or Kidd 10/22 for Christmas. I saw a meme once that said get your kids involved in shooting and they will never have money for drugs... I really think drugs are cheaper now. LOL"

    Hi guys, I wanted to chime in and thank everyone. I was sharing with @AirOpsMgr how the girls had been doing and some of the challenges, and he mentioned reaching out to the members of SET. Some of you know our girls, and their love for the shooting sports. It started with our middle daughter and has now progressed and encompasses all three girls. I’m humbled that folks care enough to offer to help these girls.
