Arkansas High Trap Team Receives $6,500 Grant from NRA Foundation


Texarkana Arkansas Razorback Trap Team recently received a NRA grant of $6,500 to purchase a new enclosed trailer.

Texarkana Arkansas Razorback Trap Team was started in 2009 by David Smedley, John Wilson, Gary Nolte, and Bill Brock. Over the past six years they have created a successful team and created a top notch range/practice facility. It has taken countless hours and lots of blood, sweat, and tears to get this group where it is today. The Friends of NRA has been lucky enough to contribute to this success by awarding them over $26,000 in grants in the last 4 years.

Organizer John Wilson Said “This grant will be used to purchase an enclosed trailer so the team can transport equipment to team meets. Due to the increase in size of our team, we are in need of a way to safely transport all team equipment and guns in one vehicle.”

Friends of NRA is an exciting grassroots fund-raising program that fosters community involvement, raises money and gives 100% of the net proceeds to qualified local, state and national programs.
