Spring Creek Trip Report from Rickey

Big thanks to Rickey for letting us know how his hunting trip went, and that SFAC hat looks good on you too, buddy! Here's Rickey's report:

"I won a Shoot for a Cure hunt during their event at Montgomery County Shooting Complex in Clarksville, TN. I was shooting with the Machinists Union District 711 Local 1296. The hunt was for a 2-day 3-night pheasant hunt in Pierre So. Dakota with Spring Creek. I got my limit each day so the hunting was great! The food they served was excellent and the people were helpful and friendly. My cabin was clean and had all the modern conveniences. I would certainly recommend this hunt to everyone. This is a hunt story I will tell for years to come." -Rickey Rye

June Sponsor Spotlight: Fiocchi

Our June Sponsor of the Month is Fiocchi Ammunition. Here is how we feel about Fiocchi, who is one of our Founding Sponsors, taken directly from their 2014 catalog:

"In our opinion, Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics is the best economical target load out there and is the official ammo of Shoot For A Cure. It is consistent, hard hitting, and clean - we very rarely have a failure. We see over 1300 shooters each year and we clean 40-60 loaner guns after each event. When you shoot as many rounds thru those guns as we do, it's nice to know that they will function for the entire event and clean up fairly easily. We rely on Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics for a great shooting experience for all of our shooters." 

Many thanks to Carlo and Jackie, your continued support throughout the years means everything to us!!!
