Boy Scouts of America Partners with SASP

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has partnered with the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) to help promote competitive pistol shooting within the organization.

“The Boy Scouts of America is pleased to partner with Scholastic Action Shooting Program to provide our Venturing youth with a challenging program,” Curt Palmer, BSA senior outdoor administration specialist, said. “Young men and women love to shoot firearms and this partnership will give them opportunities to learn safe handling while competing against their peers from around the country. It is an exciting way to teach them the values of Scouting while providing them an activity they love.”

The Boy Scouts will be using the SASP handbook, “Competitive Pistol Program Guidelines – For Participating in the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP)” in its efforts to instruct young shooters.

The guide provides a starting point to help councils and crews develop competitive shooting sports teams.

For more information on starting a shooting sports team within your council, contact Curt Palmer at Curt.Palmer@scouting.org.

Jerry Glazebrook Wins SSSF GLOCK 30th Anniversary Pistol

We’d like to congratulate Jerry Glazebrook of Virginia for winning the SSSF GLOCK 30th Anniversary Pistol.

Glazebrook purchased the raffle ticket to support his daughter Jennifer’s Team LoCo Motion.

To commemorate 30 years of GLOCK, 30 pistols have been uniquely hand-engraved by five master engravers. The exclusive SSSF pistol (S/N 30USA18) was presented to the SSSF for its significant contributions to the success of GLOCK.

The commemorative GLOCK 17 was one of five prizes in the raffle benefiting both local SASP teams and the national organization.  Other great prizes included steel targets from Action Target, two Smith and Wesson M&P 9 pistols and a Volquartsen Ultralite rifle.
