2016 FUN SHOOT ON THE ATGLEN PISTOL RANGE
The Southern Chester County Youth Shooting League holds an Annual Fun Shoot in June of each year. The youngsters assembled at the Atglen Pistol Range on June 20th to fire .22 caliber rifles at clay pigeons, knock down targets, shotgun shells strung on strings, golf balls, spinner targets, bowling pins and a variety of other interesting targets. The finale to the fun shoot involves dividing the youngsters into two teams and having each team fire at a 1x3 inch wooden stake in the ground at 20 yards distance. The first team to cut the stake in half, best out of three, was the winner. A real fun shoot that the youngsters enjoy thoroughly. In addition, the youngsters were allowed to fire other firearms under Instructor supervision and with their parents consent. This year, the youngsters fired a .22 caliber reproduction of an M1 carbine and a Reising .22 Military Training rifle. Parents were invited to join in on the fun. In addition, a 1954 Willys Military Jeep was on display for the youngsters to explore. Five NRA certified Instructors were present to safely oversee the event.
