The Four Corners Rifle and Pistol Club Junior Shooters’ Program, under the direction of Norm Bowie, provides a safe target shooting experience for our youth, ages 10-20. They meet weekly thru most of the school year. The 4CRP club program, with the help of several grants from the NRA Foundation, provide all of the firearms, ammunition, targets, and supervised range time. “It is a highly supervised training which helps the participants develop their attention to detail, listening skills, patience and perseverance. The focus is always SAFETY FIRST, Marksmanship Second”, according to program director Norm Bowie. “We are extremely proud of Cody’s work to reach this level !”
