When you're offered a chance to bust some clays and raise money for a great cause while doing so, you don't say no. It was with that in mind that four members of the NRA Publications department ventured to Queenstown, Md., on Sept. 11, 2015, for the inaugural Benelli Invitational. The event—a sporting clays tournament—brought novice and expert scattergun shooters alike to Maryland's Eastern Shore to raise money for Freedom Hunters, an organization dedicated to taking select active duty and combat veterans hunting and fishing.

And so, Tony Morrison, Mark Keefe, Ann Smith and Shawn Skipper settled on their shotguns of choice and prepared to put the hurt on some clay. Get an inside look at the event with the gallery provided above.
