Why We Want to Compete in the Survival Trial

After seeing this event featured on Shooting Gallery with Michael Bane, the event looked like a great personal challenge. Adventure racing and competitive shooting seemed like fun, and this combined them.

Our Goals with the Survival Trial

First and foremost, to enjoy the event and the experience. Second, to enhance our survival and shooting skill set. Third, to offer the other teams some tough competition.

Other pertinent information that we feel would be helpful for potential sponsors to know about us:

Both Brian and Andy are new fathers and passing on the importance of shooting and the value of the Second Amendment heritage to our kids is something we look forward to.

Please consider making a donation to help us reach our goal for this event. Your donation will provide programs and services to returning war veterans and their families to help them deal with the invisible wounds of war. To read more about the event, please visit www.survivaltrial.com.
