ISRA President Don Moran commented:

“This prestigious award is due to the hard work and dedication that continues to allow the ISRA to remain a preeminent leader in the fight for firearms rights across Illinois and the United States.”

Don Moran and ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson received this award last night, Friday, Sept 10, at NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, on behalf of the ISRA, its members, officers and directors.

Upon receiving word earlier this year that the ISRA was a recipient of this award, Richard Pearson noted:

“This award also pays homage to the many dozens of volunteers who make ISRA’s shooting sports programs some of the best in the Nation, and even the world.

Your dedication to the sport has opened up countless shooting opportunities to a whole new generation of enthusiasts.

Your continued service will ensure that both competitive and recreational shooting remain one of the safest and most rewarding of America’s pastimes.”
