Rifle Shooting - November 8 & 15, 2013

What: Rifle Shooting
When: Friday November 8 and 15, 2013
Who: All Troop 33 Scouts (parents MUST attend)
Cost: $25/Scout (covers the cost of ammo)


  • Have you ever wanted to learn how to shoot a rifle?
  • Have you shot a rifle at camp and wanted more range time?
  • Are you working on the Rifle Shooting merit badge?
You are in luck!!  I am coordinating two evenings of supervised, safe, and fun rifle shooting at the Sunnyvale Rod & Gun Club. This will be a fully supervised event.  The Sunnyvale Rod & Gun Club will provide a Range Master and a Range Safety Officer.  We have also contacted a Venture Crew who will be bringing their rifles and helping with instruction.  I will be serve as a Rifle Instructors for the evening.  I have secured the use of the entire rimfire side of the range on two separate Friday evenings for our use.  We will setup 10 lanes and both paper and reactive (steel) targets at 50 feet, 50 yards, and 100 yards.  Scouts will shoot single-fire, bolt-action rifles.  Scouts who are 14 or older will have a chance to shoot Ruger 10/22 auto-loader rifles.

NOTE: All Scouts are required to attend a MANDATORY safety briefing before they can shoot, see below for details.
