JUNIOR RIFLE PROGRAM
The Junior Rifle Club is sponsored by Haltom City Rifle & Pistol Club and is affiliated with the National Rifle Association and the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program is a skill development program. Our instruction provides the guidance for training new shooters with the basics needed to participate in 4-position target competition using a .22cal single shot rifle.
Hunting and target shooting are among the safest of all sports. Statistics compiled by the National Safety Council, National Shooting Sports Foundation, and the Civilian Marksmanship Program, confirm rifle and target shooting are among the safest of all sports. Our program is intended to make them even safer by emphasizing the basics of safe gun handling, the mechanical characteristics, and handling characteristics of the firearm being used. Shooters learn safety lessons that last a lifetime.
At Haltom City Rifle & Pistol Club we believe safety instruction is most effective when kept simple but is repetitive in its implementation. At HCR&PC we focus on four (4) basic rules of safe gun handling:
The course of fire in the qualification program are designed to take the shooter from beginning skill level (Pro-Marksman and Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, expert) up to the nationally recognized skill level of Distinguished Expert.

Our program presents shooting as a popular Olympic sport which is practiced all over the world. It is a sport with a rich heritage. Practice makes the difference in developing ability, control, discipline, concentration, and extreme precision but most of all it can provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. It is a sport that is open to all. Gender, size, speed, or strength does not determine success.
