The 4H Shooting Sports group is well organized and very professional in their approach to the shooting sports and shooting disciplines they embrace. The young people involved with the team receive invaluable instruction and practice while participating.

Members should be aware of the BRGAC’s commitment to the shooting team. And ask that any members be aware of the their scheduled shooting dates and times.
