The 2017 Shoot will have different categories of shooters with awards for each category champion: SF Guys, Civilian novice shooters, 3 Gun “Pro” shooters, Seniors, etc.

Did you know it takes longer to train a Green Beret than it does to train a fighter pilot? Come shoot with the best!



Sponsorships Available, Come Shoot with the Best. For more information contact Mark Arnold, Special Forces, Brigadier General (retired), U.S. Army, President, SFA Chapter XLV (45) at

We are seeking sponsors:

    1. $1000 sponsors can shoot with and be coached by a team of Green Berets who just returned from a combat deployment to Afghanistan.

    2. $5000 sponsors can do the same and may bring one to three others to shoot.

    3. Other donations are also welcome.  

We will provide the weapons, ammunition, meals and coaching for the $1000 and $5000 sponsors.   These patriotic sponsors need only bring a good attitude and the SF guys will do the rest to make this a very enjoyable and memorable day for them; almost all of them are Ohioans.  Sponsors can shoot all four bays and 12 iterations, or fewer.

The net proceeds of this event will go directly to supporting the men and families of this Special Forces unit.

Ohio Military Hall of Fame 2017 Induction Ceremony

Six chapter members have been nominated and approved for induction into the “class of 2017.” These brave men are: Jeff Gallaher, Sean Clifton, Matt Schaeffer, Dustin Meyer, Matt Maxwell, and Jordan Grimshaw. The ceremony is 5 May at 1130 hrs at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium in downtown Columbus.

This is a popular event and a standing room only (although there are seats for 250 people), so you are recommended to arrive early and be parked by 10 am in one of the many lots near the statehouse. Don’t expect to park at the statehouse that day unless you arrive before 0800 because this is one event that brings people in from all over the country.

Please add this to your calendars and attend it because this is a high profile event, and our guys will be the largest group within this year’s ceremony!
