• John Kline Wins Republican ‘Top Gun’ at Annual Congressional Shoot-out

    Minnesota Congressman John Kline earned the Republican “Top Gun” honors this afternoon at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation’s annual shoot-out. Every year, members of Congress who attend the shoot-out spend an afternoon in a friendly competition shooting trap, skeet, and sporting clays.

    “The shoot-out is a great event that creates camaraderie between members on both sides of the aisle that fosters effective bipartisan collaboration on issues of importance to the sporting community,” said Kline, an avid hunter and fly-fisherman. “I am pleased to work with other members of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus to promote conservation efforts and preserve our critical habitat.”

    Kline, a life member of the National Rifle Association with an A-rating from the NRA, has won the Republican “Top Gun” award five times. Democrat Collin Peterson, Kline’s colleague in the Minnesota Congressional delegation, won overall “Top Gun” status.

    The bipartisan Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) has grown into one of the largest and most effective caucuses in the US Congress with nearly 300 members of the House and Senate representing almost all 50 states. The CSC, with direct support from CSF, has maintained its effectiveness in championing the sportsmen’s agenda in Congress even through shifts in political power. While the threats to sportsmen’s interests are ever present, the CSC remains an identified group of allies continuously working as pro-sportsmen elected officials to protect and advance the agenda and interests of America’s sportsmen and women.
