In addition to a brief lecture period, participants will have the opportunity to load and shoot a .22 caliber rifle from four different firing positions. Target options will include traditional paper target faces and steel silhouettes placed at various distances. Participants also will learn proper procedures for cleaning and safely storing firearms and ammunition.
