    Middle School Pistol Club

    Another teacher and I are trying to start a pistol club at our middle school. We already have a shotgun club run by another teacher and we've been approved for our pistol club.

    The problem is legal issues and start up money. Our shotgun club is covered under hunter's safety and they got money from Scholastic. I've checked Scholastic and the NRA web-sites and I can't find info on pistol shooting for youths. I know 4-H has a program for youths.

    Does anyone have any ideas, tips, or other places I should look? Thanks.

    Have you tried emailing/calling the NRA for some help?

    Send them an email through their contact page, I'm sure the'll forward it to the right person to give you some info.

    Persue it...

    Won't help in middle school...Venturers (a coed 14-20, completed the 8th grade, BSA program) can have a pistol/revolver emphasis with NRA and BSA trained instructors, but the Boy Scout program does not allow any work with handguns. Sorry!

    OK, it was a passing thought, sounds like you know far more about it than I.

    Hmmm.... Just an idea but have you tried your local IDPA club? IDPA allows shooters as young as 12 years of age and as long as the law is followed regarding minors & firearms. Most clubs would be insured and joining IDPA is inexpensive.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    If you have NRA Instructors or coaches they will have access to discounted firearms and accessories for training purposes, that will help you stretch the dollars you get.

    Contact your local Friends of NRA committee or if you don't have a local one, contact the state level committee. In VA our FoNRA funded youth programs almost exclusively. My club received 1-3K per year from FoNRA for our YHEC (Youth Hunter Education Competition) program, sorry no pistol in that program.

    I like the IDPA or shooting club idea. Getting corporate sponsorship isn't a bad idea. Also a club's members may be quite generous especially if pitched the right way.
