The NRA Foundation Awards $2400 to the WVC Shooting Club

The NRA Foundation has awarded Wabash Valley College a grant totaling $2400 to fund two (2) Winchester shotguns and 1500 rounds of ammunition.  "We are very excited about the WVC Shooting Club," said Dean Robert Conn, "and pleased that the NRA is making an investment in the WVC Shooting Sports Initiative."

Wabash Valley College is one of only eight community colleges in the United States to offer an Associate Degree in Gunsmithing and believes that development of a Shooting Club was a great way to introduce our students to the outdoor activities of trap and skeet and shooting sports in general. The Shooting Club is open to current full-time students and anyone interested in learning more about shooting sports and the firearms industry. Interested individuals should contact Tim Zimmer at 618-263-5024 or
