“Meet the nine year old competitive shooter taking the world by storm”

From guns.com, a story of a remarkable young shooter in the U.S.:

Nine-year-old shooting sensation Alpha Addy has taken the gun world by storm with her impressive performances in competitions and displays on social media. The youth started shooting three years ago after seeing other young shooters shred steel on YouTube. But with firearms being relatively foreign to her parents, her godfather, Johnny Campos, took to training her.

I know I’ve met some young shooters in our area who are better shots with a rifle than I am.  And it’s nice to see the emphasis that Alpha Addy and her trainers place on safe gun handling.  Read the whole thing, and be sure to watch the video.  (You can also read the special youth issue of Sure Shots magazine on-line.)

Family Day July 8th

Don’t forget our annual FAMILY DAY to be held at the clubhouse on Sunday, July 8th. The club supplies the food, so bring your family and come out for a social afternoon with your fellow hunt club families. Please bring your own drinks and lawn chairs. Come out around 3:30 pm, eat between 5 – 5:30 pm.
