All participants must go through our club safety program and have a parent or guardian present when shooting.
Coaches are accredited through 4-H shooting sports and/or NRA coaching program and RSO certification with many volunteers being range safety officers. Our goal is that youth learn life abilities and habits, for them to become positive individuals in society while having fun breaking targets.
Experienced shooters and beginners are welcome and encouraged to stop by and check us out!
We shoot every Friday from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Capitol City Gun Club located at 3590 Arrowhead Drive, Carson City, Nevada.
