The Patrick County 4-H Marksmen use shooting as a vehicle to teach youth ages 9-19 life skills such as responsibility, self-discipline, and teamwork through skills learned in archery, muzzleloading, pistol, rifle, and shotgun. Through these disciplines, youth also learn firearm safety and marksmanship.
The club would like to thank American Legion Post # 105, Shooters Gun and Pawn, Patrick County Sheriff’s Office and Stuart Family Restaurant for their continued support.
