Last Saturday, our local gun club hosted a Youth Field day for 200 youngsters. The younger ones shot .22 rifles, crossbows, went fishing and other outdoor activities. The older teenagers came to my high power rifle station on the 50 yard rifle range. We used Savage .223 Axis bolt action rifles with 3x-9x scopes. The shooters wore ear plugs and muffs and eye protection while they shot 20 rounds from sandbags at bullseye and groundhog targets. Each shooter had an adult instructor working with them. We processed 51 teenagers during the day and fired 1,000 rounds. I must be getting old because that ten hour day nearly did me in. Everyone had a great time. The instructors shared the PMC brass and MidwayUSA reimbursed us for the ammo. All the best...
Gil

It does wear you out but you have fun right up to the end! I like that about working with Women on Target. It is a lot of fun showing them how to hold the gun, aim and squeeze the trigger. When they get a bullseye we take their picture with the target. It is a load of fun but a full days work as well.

It can be damned hard work Gil...but more satisfying that most other work mate.

Introducing the kids to the shooting and outdoor sports, teaching them safety, then seeing the look on their face when they hit a good score or catch a fish is all the payment one needs mate. Well done buddy.

Good job, Gil. We need more youngsters out in the field.
