Junior Rifle 2016
The mission of our Junior Rifle program is to properly train young people in firearm safety and marksmanship. We believe that a working knowledge of safe and responsible handling and competent use of firearms is essential to everyone. There is no safety in ignorance!
Our Junior Rifle program is available to all families who are US citizens. West Branch membership is not required. There are no range fees or other charges. We offer this program as a community service, to promote firearm safety and basic training in marksmanship.
Our Junior shooters range in age from 8 to 18. They must have written parental permission to participate in our program, and must be accompanied at each session by a parent or other responsible adult.
We provide the firearms (.22 caliber target quality rifles), ammunition, and other necessary equipment. Everyone should bring their own appropriate eye and ear protection, though we do have loaners available the first time you attend.
Our Junior shooters are trained by our team of NRA Certified Rifle Instructors and other experienced shooters. Their training begins with a thorough safety orientation, then they start out on the firing line in a carefully supervised bench rest position. Safety remains our primary concern, as our young shooters go on, at their own individual pace, to develop marksmanship skills in the four basic shooting positions. As they progress, they earn certificates and medals in the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program. Over many years, we and those who passed this responsibility down to us have trained hundreds of young shooters in essential firearm knowledge and skills.
Our 2016 season will begin on Saturday, May 7th, and will continue on the first and third Saturdays of every month through September, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. If you would like to attend, just CONTACT US and request the required Parental Permission forms. We will send you the forms and answer any other questions you might have.
Do not return the forms by mail or email. Just bring them with you to the first session you attend. Plan to arrive at least twenty minutes early to register and sign in. The safety orientation for new shooters begins promptly at 10:00 AM.
