Columbia, MO -(AmmoLand.com)- Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $97,537 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports.

This donation stems from the matching program offered by the MidwayUSA Foundation. Donors have the ability to choose the shooting team that will benefit from their donation and Larry and Brenda Potterfield match that donation.

The Potterfields have generously committed to a 1:1 matching program administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation through November, 2015. A donation match is made for all funds returned to Team Endowment Accounts that teams generate from MidwayUSA Foundation promotions. A donation match is also made for all private donations and private donors are given the opportunity to designate a specific shooting team to benefit 100% from their donation.

In 2014 the Potterfields’ commitment to the MidwayUSA Foundation match program resulted in the donation of over 4.6 million in matching dollars.

I sure as well wished I was born in the south. Growing up in New Jersey, I never knew what it was like to hunt, going to be 48 years this 27th of November and still have not learned to hunt.
I unfortunately have parents that till this date believe mainstream media and are really anti-gun, to the point where I have to hide what ever weapon I have, out of respect when they visit.
At least my kids got to learn about guns, but no hunting trips since I myself do not know how to hunt.
