Established in 1967, the Foundation for the Junior Trapshooters of Missouri was created to fund instruction and training of trapshooting to Missouri youth and also assists with shooting supplies and safety training. The Foundation is associated with the Missouri Trapshooters Association in Linn Creek, MO, where hundreds of young Missourians experience and learn the sport of trapshooting each year.

This organization, in our home state, is focused on developing tomorrow's shooters today. Changing the future requires us to make the commitment in time and money to support these efforts. We're pleased we can help."
