The Loudoun County 4-H has received a grant from the NRA Foundation for the 4-H Shooting Education Program. The grant has provided more than $3,000 worth of equipment for the program, which stresses gun safety, form, accuracy, self-discipline and proper sporting usage of target firearms.

The new equipment includes a high pressure air compressor, two air pistols, four BB guns, kneeling pads and other assorted gear.  

The equipment received through the grant allows 4-H members to learn hands-on firearm safety. The grant provides members who have an interest in competitive shooting events the opportunity to practice with state-of-the-art equipment and helps keep expenses down for families who participate in the program. 

4-H is the youth development education program of Virginia Cooperative Extension, which focuses on development of life skills. More than 176,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in Virginia 4-H activities each year with the help of over 15,000 adult and youth volunteers. Virginia Cooperative Extension is an outreach of Virginia Tech and Virginia State Universities.
