Class Description:

Through engaging and interactive science experiments, drills, expert instruction, and trigger time, the youth in this membership will have unprecedented access to one-of-a-kind firearms training. This training will be accomplished by allowing the youth the regular opportunity to gain knowledge about firearms, ammunition, and marksmanship in a hands-on style. In this membership, youth can look forward to:

  • Learning and regularly implementing the four fundamental firearms safety rules
  • Understanding firearms' cycle of operations
  • Learning how to properly care for a firearm
  • Participating in gun powder experiments, thus understanding the differences in the burn rate between different types of gun powder
  • Shooting at ballistics gelatin and then retrieving the rounds to view a bullet's deformation
  • Shooting at fruit and witnessing the energy differences between various cartridges and projectiles. 
  • Participating in gallery and competition style shooting

Following this course, students will be well prepared to engage in firearms competitions, a talent that they can enjoy throughout their lives and may one day pay for their college education.
