From 1957, here's a full PDF of the informational booklet SHOOTING'S FUN FOR EVERYONE, in which boys and girls learn that "America grew up with a gun in its hand" and opines the kiddies to "organize shooting fun in your school."
The 2-color book was issued by and copyright 1957 by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute, 50 West 43rd Street, New York, NY.
Thanks to Mike at the Everyday, No Days Off Gun Blog for this.
Now, 1957 was a wild year. Not only were kids packin' heat in school (with SAMMI's cheerleading), but it was also the first year the BBC documented the Swiss spaghetti tree harvest, which was especially good that year.
