4-H Accepts NRA Shooting Education Grant

The Loudoun County 4-H has received a grant from the NRA Foundation for the 4-H Shooting Education Program.

The grant has provided a high-pressure air compressor, two air pistols, four BB guns, kneeling pads and other assorted gear, collectively valued at more than $3,000. The program stresses gun safety, form, accuracy, self-discipline and proper sporting usage of target firearms.

The equipment received through the grant allows 4-H members to learn hands-on firearm safety. The grant provides members who have an interest in competitive shooting events the opportunity to practice with state-of-the-art equipment and helps keep expenses down for families who participate in the program.

4-H is the youth development education program of Virginia Cooperative Extension. More than 176,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in Virginia 4-H activities each year with the help of over 15,000 adult and youth volunteers. Virginia Cooperative Extension is an outreach of Virginia Tech and Virginia State University.

To learn more about 4-H, contact Loudoun 4-H Extension Agent Carly Wright at 703-777-0373, or visit loudoun.gov/4-H.

    Not one item is a firearm “Facts.” You’re against safety education for young folks?

      Against a death cult like NRA using the 4H to get publicity and keep their name in the news…that’s all.

      Besides, on a daily basis the NRA leadership spills more money than that into the seat cushions at their Fairfax headquarters.
