Last week, I took the 16 students in my Sociology of Guns seminar at Wake Forest on a field trip to the gun range. This is the 8th time I have taught the course and the 8th successful field trip we have taken as a class. All 16 students took the opportunity to shoot a Ruger Mark III .22LR pistol, a Glock 17 9mm pistol, and a .223 cal. AR-style rifle. 11 of the students had never shot a gun before none had shot an AR.
Tomorrow, in connection with my Light Over Heat YouTube channel, I will discuss this year’s field trip at greater length.
Today, I am seeking a modest amount of financial support for the field trip. Last year Lucky Gunner ammo donated 200 rounds of each of the three calibers the students shot. This year I did not have an opportunity to solicit donations in advance of the field trip, so I have created a “goal” on my Buy Me a Coffee page if you would like to contribute to my range expense fund. Or you can contribute through PayPal using the “donate” link below.
Including ammunition, hearing and eye protection, bench rest bags, a training consultation, and other supplies, I am at least $500 into this field trip. Anything contributed over this amount I will put toward next year’s (anticipated) class field trip.
Thank you for your support of my work.
