Area youth enjoy gun safety and trap shoot day

  • Area youth enjoy gun safety and trap shooting day A total of 24 area youth learned about gun safety and enjoyed some trap shooting recently as the Sandpoint Gun Club, Klondike Restaurant and Ducks Unlimited teamed up to offer a free and great experience for kids ages 7-17 years-old. The clinic included shotgun safety instruction and shooting lessons, and each youth was mentored one on one by Sandpoint Gun Club members while shooting trap. Some of the youth were familiar with gun safety, while others had never shot trap before. Prizes were awarded and a barbecue followed the fun. The gun club hopes this will encourage the parents to bring their children back to shoot in the future. While Sandpoint does not currently have a youth trap shooting team, the youth are welcome to participate in trap shooting events against other youth teams from local gun clubs and high schools. The guns, ammunition and targets were supplied by the Sandpoint Gun Club, which operates all year on Sunday starting at 9 a.m., and on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. during spring, summer and fall only.
