Scout Rifles Instruction Starts Next Week

by Jackson Hole. Media

The Boy Scout Troops of the Jackson District will be holding regular monthly rifle instruction on the first Thursday of each month.  The first session of 2018 will be held Thursday June 7th at the JH Gun Club range, 5570 US-89, Jackson, WY 83001, south of town, south of the trash transfer station.  Instruction will be in the Scouts Class Room and on the .22lr range.  Information about the gun club and range is available at <>. The class session will start at 6pm and run approximately two hours.

These classes are open to all scouts and their family members. Boy Scouts and older participants will use .22 rifles. Webelos and Cub Scouts will use air rifles, and should be accompanied by a parent to the session.

Scouts Rifles was initiated last year and is now scheduled for regular monthly meetings.  The classroom and range activities are offered without charge.  All equipment and supplies are provided,

HOWEVER, advance scout registration and a $5 refundable registration deposit
is required for each session. The registration deposit will be REFUNDED UPON ATTENDANCE of the registered scout at the session, unless you want to donate it to the Scouts.  Non-scouts and family members, who are NOT members of the Jackson Hole Gun Club, who want to shoot at the range during the session, may be asked to pay a  separate range guest fee.

Instruction in the classroom will always review safety and range procedures.  An additional classroom topic of general interest, or topic specifically applicable to the range activity of the day, will be covered.  This is where the students steer the instruction by requesting topics of interest to them.  The activities will GENERALLY be applicable to some of the Boy Scout Rifle Shooting merit badge requirements, but will cover quite a bit more, including some entertaining and fun shooting.
