Think you've got a good eye and a steady hand? In this project you'll learn how to shoot a rifle straight and safe. Learn different firing positions; range rules and commands; target scoring; and how to care for, transport, and store your rifle. In time you could make a gun case, build a rifle from a kit, become a rifle teen leader, even someday shoot in the Olympics!
