Coming from a family of hunters, I started hunting at the age of 12 with my dad, uncles, and friends.  I have always loved to shoot.22 rifles, just because they’re fun to plink with and inexpensive to shoot.

I hope to help junior shooters to learn firearm safety while having fun.  I would love to help them improve their shooting skills and build their confidence.  Due to no recoil and lack of noise, a .22 rifle is a perfect way to get into the sport of target shooting and hunting.  This will also be a great way to get to know new people and have some fun.

Description

This event has traditionally been a great hit with people of all ages and a nice way for youth to transition from an air rifle or pellet gun to the next stage of their firearms learning and skill.

We will be shooting 5 animal silhouettes at each station, at 25, 50, 75 and 100 yards.  This is 20 shots total.

You will use only 1 rifle.

Scoring

You must knock the silhouette over for your shot to count as a hit.  Each silhouette hit is a point.

At the end, we’ll add up the scores and see how we did!
