    The Adaptive Defensive Shooting Summit will hold its second annual event this fall.

    The shooting sports are a wonderful way to bring people together. The camaraderie, the learning experiences, and the competitive aspects can forge great friendships over common interests and experiences. Moreover, defensive firearms use can be important for all kinds of people. The folks over at the second annual Adaptive Defensive Shooting Summit, led by US Army veteran and wounded warrior Trevor Baucom, know this firsthand. Since a helicopter crash in Afghanistan in 2010 left him paralyzed from the waist down, Baucom has become an accomplished ambassador for adaptive shooting as well as building a solid competitive shooting career for himself. In a June 16th press release, he shared that other adaptive shooters can now register for the Adaptive Defensive Shooting Summit 2020, to be held this October at SIG Sauer’s Academy in New Hampshire. The press release reads as follows.

    Registration Open for 2020 Adaptive Defensive Shooting Summit

    Trevor Baucom has announced that the registration for the second annual Adaptive Defensive Shooting Summit is now open. Set for October 23-24, 2020 at the SIG Sauer Academy in Epping, New Hampsire, the event has expanded in competitor capacity and challenges.

    In order to participate in the championship event, competitors will be required to attend a half day training and live fire shooting development seminar held on October 23. The session is included in the $95 registration fee and will be taught by renowned Learn To Shoot Again and SIG SAUER Academy instructors.

    The SIG SAUER Academy is known for delivering world class training to elite military units, law enforcement and responsible citizens. With 110 courses held on 25 ranges spanning nearly 140 acres there is something available for everyone.

    Decreased mobility doesn’t stop passionate adaptive shooters.

    If you are a shooting enthusiast with a disability such as limb amputation, permanent injury or illness requiring full-time use of a mobility aid like a wheelchair, or some other condition that significantly interferes with activities of daily living, contact Baucom via the event website’s registration page to sign up for this awesome event. If you personally are not an adaptive shooter, please feel free to share this great cause with anyone you know who might be. Let’s endeavor to help include others who might not otherwise be able to participate in this great hobby we share. See you at the range!

    Baucom ensures that the range is clear of brass so his fellow adaptive shooters can maneuver safely.
