The WLRGC Junior’s Program teaches firearms safety and marksmanship to the next generation of firearms enthusiasts in a safe controlled friendly and fun environment. WLRGC provides its juniors with access to indoor and outdoor rifle and pistol ranges qualified instructors and all necessary equipment including: firearms ammunition targets eye ear protection and NRA achievement awards. Junior’s program participants learn a variety of shooting disciplines from NRA certified instructors. Much of the program utilizes .22 caliber rifles and pistols in our climate controlled 50 foot indoor range however the Juniors will use the outdoor pistol/rifle and trap/skeet ranges when the weather permits. Over time the juniors receive instruction on the safe use of rimfire and center fire pistols rimfire and center fire revolvers rimfire and center fire rifles modern shotguns black powder rifles and pistols air rifles and pistols and archery equipment. Juniors actively compete against themselves to earn Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Awards (http://mqp.nra.org/).

Regular participants will continuously expand their knowledge of firearms and improve their marksmanship skills.
