Is "USA Shooting" a legitimate charity for shooting Olympics?

    Got this letter in the mail today with a nickel glued/taped to the inside front and it's telling about how US Olympic Shooters need money for firearms, practice ammo, etc. They sent along some address stickers,,,,typical advertising.

    Are these guys legitimate or is this a scam? If its legit, I don't mind throwing a one time wad of cash for them but otherwise,,,,?

    USA shooting is the organization that runs Olympic style shooting in the US from local matches, through the Junior Olympics, and on to the US Olympic team. They seem to have left all the shooting sports that don't lead to Olympic or international (ISSF) events alone. Think silhouette, but there are others.

    Like any possible scam, I suggest going direct to usashooting.org rather than following your mailing.

    Consider sponsoring a local kid instead. More feel-good for the dollar.
