As the only non-government supported shooting team in the world, USA Shooting relies heavily on donors and sponsors to help maintain a history of success that includes 110 Olympic medals.

"On behalf of the millions of NRA members and the tens of millions of shooting sports enthusiasts across our great country, it is my true honor to help America's finest in their quest for excellence,” said Richard Childress, first vice president of the National Rifle Association. “These athletes and those who support them are the highest profile ambassadors we have for the shooting sports and we are all honored to stand behind them.
