College tuition is a big challenge for most of us, but guns can help pay the freight. So can badminton, martial arts, bowling, barrel racing, and other rodeo and equestrian sports. Scholarship money for all of those college sports is available in a vast number of places, including the schools themselves. Visit collegescholarships.org for a flight of fancy and finance.

Oh look, a painted turd claiming the moral high ground.
Kevin sounds like an idiot. Does he also hate bearing presses, drills, and hammers? Because they, like firearms, are tools that must be handled with care, exhibit precision, and are specialist tools.
I wonder if you could get an online course? lol! Hell, I’m one of the lucky ones, I could ‘study’ right in the back ‘yard’!!
I earned myself a partial scholarship while competing on the University of Akron rifle team. Ironically my brother is a better marksman than me, but I got the scholarship because I’m female. Title IX bullcrap. Anyway, the scholarship helped with tuition but I bought my own rifles, sights, and equipment. I look forward to taking my kids to Camp Perry for smallbore school and national championship matches.
"I generally detest guns."
Yeah, I generally detest knives.
That looks like it hurts.
Same guy who ‘detests’ guns most certainly loves scissors to the back of babies’ heads when thrust in by a Planned Parenthood butcher.
Funny what libs detest and what they like.
The Alaska Nanooks are the University of Alaska/Fairbanks has a great rifle program.
The little place where several national record holders come from. http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/etsuarchives/4409293196/
I was captain of the lawn dart team at UC Berkley. I took one for the team, and there went my scholarship. I still can’t wear a cap.
You must have been the goalie.
As far as scholarships go, he can go to Annapolis like his Dad, or use my GI Bill and go wherever he wants. Rifle scholarship money doesn't go far when 3.6 scholarships are split multiple ways.
I know 4 of the people in that photo really well. I might use that photo to embarrass the guy on the upper right.
I was a member of my high school rifle team (class of 80). We had some really, really good shooters some of whom had their own expensive (Anschutz) rifles. I just used one of the school-owned Winchester Model 70 bull-barrel rifles. We kept the rifles at school, and regularly had cleaning parties after school, had dry-fire practices in one of the classrooms, and routinely carried the rifles in and out of the school to our cars for our practices down at the local armory range.
We were pretty good. One time, on a particulary good day we even beat the team from Fort Lewis at a match there. I think a couple of guys from the team went on to more national-level matches.
[sigh] I don’t think my old school even has a rifle team anymore. Sad.
They stopped their program in 1986, some of the best marksmen and women in the world trained there. There are currently talking of a new program and a new football team. ????
I’ll bet that hurts like the dickens.
I’m a collector of knives, swords, spears and other such bladed weapons... mainly because of the historical context of blades and other sharp things. Most of history is the history of metallurgy and the making and effective using of sharp objects. I also have a deep phobia of being cut. Curious, that.
The best part of it was that our Coach was a Presidential 100 winner - and was a USMC.
Some of the best of times!
