    Here is the latest. I just called the state 4-H shooting sports coordinator at Purdue to see if there was a need. She said they have had several calls from counties with concerns.

    She will forward my contact info in their newsletter and email me at work any counties with need. INGO will also get some promotion for those 4-H instructors who hang around here and want to try to contact us directly but I figure it will be difficult to find this thread. Is there a way we can get this thread as a sticky for now?

    I am extremely limited on .22lr inventory myself but would be willing to donate what little I can as well.

    I will forward any needs as they come in.

    Well, i m going to see if I can find and contact Vigo Co 4H & Boy Scouts tomorrow.

    After going to look for the brick, turns out I have one for each of these groups.

    I might even be able to help Appleseed a bit but not another brick just yet.
    I will assume Appleseed will contact me here as they do have a presence.
    If it turns out Vigo Co is fine then those bricks could go to Appleseed.

    I will post again tomorrow after I know what is needed where.
    For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
    now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    Good deal folks,

    When you find a need post it up and I'll edit the OP with needs met/filled.

    Went to a benefit a couple of weeks ago put on by the "Friends of the NRA" in Auburn. The whole purpose was to raise money for youth shooting programs. They may be able to point ya in the right direction. I will donate as well.

    Spoke to the Vigo Co 4-H and they sure need the ammo. I was asked not to post names and number but told I could give them out in PM's'
    If you are in the Vigo County area, PM me for where to go and who to call to let them know you want to help them out with ammo.

    The Boy Scouts office called back and told me where to take my ammo. I was also told they are also in dire need of this kind of gift statewide so do what yo can folks.


    I sent both of these people a link to this thread in case they wanted to see it or address with any specific needs.

    As a 4H shooting sports parent in Boone County, and a Boy Scout leader/firearms instructor, I commend all who can contribute to the youth shooting sports programs.

    I had to reschedule a shooting campout with the scouts due to lack of ammo until the fall. Hopefully the supply will increase by then.

    If I could rep everyone stepping up, I would!

    Thanks All!

    WELL! I was finally able to drop off my brick to the 4H and the guy from BSA just came to get theirs.

    I hope this helps around here. I know all I saw were big smiles at the 4H office when I showed them the box.
    The person from BSA was also very appreciative and both said I would be getting thank you letters from the kids.

    how did the rest of you fare or are you all still getting around to making your donations?

    I emailed the state 4-H shooting sports coordinator again. She said it will go out in their newsletter first part of April. apparently they are not connected well on the internet.

    DNR Camp

    I sent an inquiry to the DNR officer who runs the Karl E. Kelley Memorial Camp in June. I was advised of this program by somebody here a few years ago and have sent 3 grandson through it. I will advise if they need ammo.

    BTW, my grandsons all loved the camp. I highly recommend it.
    What if there were no hypothetical questions?

    My local BSA guy said they aren't posting this to the interweb, just not something they are geared up to do.

    4-H, at least locally, said they are going to check this thread and say what is needed in Vigo Co at least.

    Let's face it folks, they are having as much trouble getting ammo as we are these days.

    Both of these organizations we so happy with me when I gave them the ammo I had to shake all the hands or get hugs from everyone in the 4H Office before I was allowed to leave. I had thank you emails waiting for me when I got home and promises of letters from the kids I helped. I told them not to make a big deal about it too. They wouldn't have it, I thought they were going to give me a plaque for heaven's sake! I also offered them a few bricks each of Colibri ammo, the low power sub sonic stuff that doesn't cycle a semi-auto reliably. I was told that wouldn't work well for how they teach.
