People TxAT & Aguila Donate Ammo to NRA Whittington Youth Adventure Camp Recoil Staff March 19, 2016 Join the Conversation Texas Armament & Technology in Conroe, TX recently announced their planned support of the NRA Whittington Center Youth Adventure Camp. TxAT/Aguila Ammunition intends to provide 50,000 rounds of .22 ammunition free of charge. That's a lot of bullets. Here’s how they explained it. “The Whittington Adventure Camp is known as one of America’s best outdoor youth camps for boys and girls ages 13 to 17,” said Executive Director at NRA Whittington Center, Wayne Armacost. “Over the two-week camp, young shooters will learn the basics of rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzleloader and archery. In the process, campers will fire over 90,000 rounds of ammunition. All firearms and ammunition are donated to the Adventure Camp and provided to the campers. This generous support from Aguila Ammunition ensures that each of these young men and women has the opportunity to learn to shoot in a safe and fun environment.” “We are honored and excited to support the Whittington Center Adventure Camp, a program that not only gives youth a chance to learn the fundamentals of shooting all firearms, but also competition shooting, marksmanship and most importantly, shooting safety,” states Kristi Drawe, Director of Marketing for TxAT/Aguila Ammunition. “The future of our industry is reliant on the younger generation. Aguila is honored to be some of the first ammunition these shooters will ever shoot, in what hopefully becomes a lifetime passion. We will be part of the memories made within this program. “ The Whittington Center is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, relying heavily on tax-deductible donations. While closely associated with the NRA the Whittington Center is not funded or managed by the NRA, thus making industry support of this unique and challenging youth camp all the more the important. The donations bring competitions, classes and events to the Whittington Center, which helps keep the shooting sports alive for generations. Aguila Ammunition was founded in 1961 and claims they are “one of the largest rimfire manufacturers in the world.” Their manufacturing plant is in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico by Industrias Tecnos, S.A. de C.V. Texas Armament & Tecnology is the exclusive North American distributor for Aguila Ammunition. TxAT is a veteran-owned business that describes its mission thusly: “To provide technical support and assist in selecting the best ammunition, equipment, and training for customer requirements-ranging from weapons to counterterrorism and national security.” For more information about TxAT, click here to go to their website.
