California Boy Scout Troop Receives NRA Foundation GrantFolsom, CA -(Ammoland.com)- The is proud to award Boy Scouts of America Troop 1855, located in Folsom, California, with an $8, 500 grant for its shotgun merit badge program.

The troop, which formed in the 1990s through a group of parent volunteers, will use the grant to purchase shotguns, ammunition, clay targets, an electric thrower, and safety equipment.

“The new firearms and equipment were made available to the troop thanks to fundraising, ” said Richard Horn, Troop 1855 Assistant Scoutmaster and El Dorado Sheriff’s Department Detective. “They will provide more than 25 scouts aged from 12 years old to teenagers working toward the rank of Eagle Scout with much better access to shooting sports opportunities.”

To earn the badge, a scout must learn to handle, clean and operate the three different types of shotgun actions (Pump, Semi and Break-action) and must fire 100 rounds to break no fewer than 50 targets all thrown at the same trajectory.
