Note: Despite all the problems, our friends in Mexico still want to
compete. The shooting sports are still alive, not that well, but
still alive in Mexico. Following couple stories about kids from
Sonora and Jalisco competing in the ISSF, Olympic shooting
competitions in Mexico over the next few days. Mostly air guns. But
there is also some .22 rimfire and for adults centerfire events.
Some of them hope to make it the the summer olympics. Run by the
Mexican shooting organization FEMETI. Some good photos of some of
the juniors in Nuevo Dia, in Sonora and El Informador in Jalisco.
Some of us still remember the good old days when we could go there to
compete or hunt, and our Mexican friends could come here. Let's work
to make that happen again.
BTW, much better media coverage than in the U.S.
