LUVERNE, AL --(Ammoland.com)- Mention kids and guns in the same sentence in many public settings and the “enlightened” folks will recoil in horror.
Those of us who don’t live in the artificial bubble of New York City or Los Angles understand that introducing young people to the shooting sports is a tradition as old as this nation.
Thankfully there are still people in the United States dedicated to providing education and training to the next generation of shooters.
On July 15th 2012 I was present for the opening of the Ohio 4H Shooting Education Camp, a weeklong program designed to teach young people the safe and effective use of firearms and archery gear. This year marks the fifteenth annual Shooting Ed. Camp held at Canter’s Cave 4H Camp just outside of Jackson, Ohio.
Nearly two-hundred kids age 13 to 18 took part in the camp and were coached by over forty trained adult volunteers.
