Hannibal Area Shooter’s Education Youth BB Gun League begins Nov. 2.
The free class is a firearm safety awareness program for children ages 8-18. Topics include ethics, sportsmanship, fundamentals for firing a gun, ammunition knowledge and safe gun handling, wildlife management and animal identification. This is not a hunter certification course. Participants can earn awards for improvement in target practice.
Classes begin at 6 p.m. and sessions will be Thursday evenings at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center as long as school is in session, through Feb. 22, 2024.
Registration information is available by contacting Travis Moore at 573-231-2859; old3toes@hotmail.com. Volunteers are also needed and can sign up by contacting Moore.
