4-H Shooting Sports not only gives youth an opportunity to learn firearm safety and enjoy target shooting, but it also helps teach life skills the youth will use the rest of their lives.  Life skills such as: decision making, awareness, communication, self discipline, goal setting and many, many more, too numerous to list.  If your 4-H club is interested in getting involved with the 4-H Shooting Sports program, please contact Holly Jordan at holly_jordan@ncsu.edu for more information.
