NSSF Summit plots course of action

Turning plans into action is the goal of The National Shooting Sports Foundation's 2009 Shooting Sports Summit as industry leaders come together this week in Weston, Fla.

Last year's Shooting Sports Summit, the first in 6 years, focused on the results of a three-year study exploring the future of hunting and shooting. From this, Task Force 20/20 was formed to develop a plan and put it into action.

And that action is an aggressive goal to increase participation in hunting and shooting sports by 20 percent over the next five years.

Through a sponsership from Davidson's, several key segments of the summit will be broadcast live online, beginning with a TaskForce 20/20 overview at 8:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday. Live streaming will be accessible through NSSF.org.

In addition to live streaming, additional coverage of the summit will be available through NSSF.org, including video interviews with summit attendees and photos.
