(WSIL) -- Thanks to a grant from the National Rifle Association (NRA) Foundation, Williamson County 4-H shooting sports will expand their air rifle and pistol programs with new equipment.
The $6,800 will provide youth with the opportunity to safely learn about shooting sports with quality materials.
"Without the support of the NRA Foundation, youth would have to pay a supply fee. Through this gift, we can reduce barriers to youth learning about the sport through hands-on experience," said Girtman.
Through the 4-H shooting sports program, youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, principles of hunting, and much more.
