We offer instruction in firearms handling and safety as well as proper techniques for shooting .22 rimfire rifles, trap, and skeet. .22 rifles and 12 and 20 gauge shotguns will be provided for those who don't own their own. Parents and their youngsters are invited to come out and try something new.  

RCGC wants to encourage youth shooting activity and is ready to accomodate your youth group.  We periodically host Scout and church youth groups as well as a 4-H Shooting Club. If you would like to set up a visit for your group, contact Youth Director Ron Anderson. If you seek more structured activities, the Civilian Marksmanship Program offers a number of classes and shooting events for youth.

4-H Shooting Club

The 4-H Shooting Club at RCGC is accepting new members. Membership is open to all youth between the ages of 10 and 19. Shooting activities currently include .22 rifle, air pistol, archery, muzzleloading, and trap using 20 and 12 gauge shotguns. We emphasize safe gun handling and shooting. All participants are closely supervised by qualified instructors. The club meets once a month, usually at RCGC, on the first Thursday afternoon of the month. There is no cost for membership and participation in 4-H activities. All equipment and ammunition is provided free. You will be expected to participate in club fundraisers including the annual Central Carolina Fair. Each year shooting club members have the option to compete in various disciplines at the regional and state shooting tournaments. State winners are eligible for the national tournament.

Scout Troop #216


Scout Troop #216 from Greensboro returned Sat. 11/23/13 for their annual outing at RCGC. There were fewer numbers this year but not a bit less fun. Experience levels varied from those that had never held a gun to some on their third visit. They shot .22s at the rimfire range and 66 rounds on the trap fields. As usual this group of young men were well-disciplined, well supervised, and very appreciative of the opportunity to visit RCGC.

  

  

  

 


Firearms and Your Family Forum


RCGC co-sponsored a FREE family-oriented hands-on, fun-filled day dedicated to responsible firearm use in hunting, recreational shooting, and family security on Sunday 8/18 at Willow Oaks Plantation, Eden NC. There were shooting events (guns, ammo, eye and ear protection provided), demonstrations, programs, a picnic supper, fantastic door prizes, and visit from NRA's Eddie Eagle. Sheriff Sam Page was the emcee.



Club President and Youth Program Director Ron Anderson and Dr. Pete Bromley from the Rockingham County Wildlife Advisory Committee congratulate the winner of a youth model shotgun donated by Remington. Ron offered free shooting lessons to the winner of the shotgun, and made the same offer of free shooting instruction to all of the young people who attended.
