Spring 2010 Newsletter

With the transition to spring we can once again look forward to days in the field enjoying the bounty of recreational opportunities found in nature.  Below are a few ways FSC has been working to make these opportunities even more enjoyable.

Beretta Trident Program

The Beretta Trident Program was introduced in the United States at the Safari Club International meeting in Reno, Nevada, January 22, 2010. Initially, this program is designed to provide sportsmen and women an objective assessment of sporting venues offering wing shooting and/or shotgun shooting sports in the United States, and ultimately, of any venue of interest, including sporting clubs, gun clubs, shooting estates, and leisure real estate, world-wide.

Beretta, the noted purveyor of quality firearms for over 500 years, has partnered with Sporting Heritage Group to manage all aspects of the program. Sporting Heritage Group will employ a unique rating system to make its assessments and grant Beretta’s quality endorsement. The program is intended to advocate for the traditional heritage of the sporting life while providing much needed consumer confidence in selecting sporting destinations.  Read more…
