Southwest Chapter Muley Fanatics Foundation Donates Inert Training Firearms to Hunter Education

     Thanks to a very generous donation from the Muley Fanatics, the Green River Region of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department received two sets of five inert training firearms. The Mossberg training firearms are inert- they are unable to fire ammunition- and they have five different actions-pump, break, semi-auto, lever and bolt. Each set cost $1500.00 and they donated TWO SETS! Hunter education students of all ages will now be able to demonstrate how to properly handle firearms. A huge thanks to the Southwest Chapter Muley Fanatics Foundation!
