YOUTH SHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES
The Golden Triangle Gun Club is proud to sponsor Youth Safety Education and Shooting. In cooperation with organizations such as 4-H, the GTGC provides range facilities and equipment to promote safe gun handling skills, safe target shooting opportunities and competitive shooting for a life long enjoyment of the shooting sports.
You can look for the youth shooters at the Golden Triangle Gun Club almost every Saturday in the spring on the Small Bore Range where, in cooperation with other youth development programs, we have a great time sharing our love of shooting sports.
4-H Shooting Sports
Small Bore (.22 Rifle): The Jefferson County 4-H shoots small bore rifles at the 50 foot range most Saturday Mornings in the spring time starting in January and continuing through April. The project ends with competitive events at the County Level and at the District Level where local teams compete against other County teams from across Southeast Texas. In addition numerous events are available on the State Level for Youth Shooters.
BB Guns and Sporter Air Rifle: The precision BB Guns and Sporter Air Rifle are offered at various times though out the year depending on the availability of indoor facilities and coaching staff. This is a great way to involve young shooters in shooting sports while teaching the basics of safety and target competitions.
Shotguns: The Shotgun project runs through the spring and summer at the GTGC and other local clubs. Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays shooting is provided for a modest target fee. Several State 4-H sponsored events are offered though out the year for Shotgun Shooters.
Other Youth Opportunities
Most events at the gun club encourage Youth Shooters. If you are interested please ask the match director for information on getting involved. Other youth organizations that are interested in sponsoring Youth Shooter are encouraged to contact the 4-H instructors for information and help.
