The Ramapoo Junior Club is open to any young person, ages 10 to 19, interested in learning to shoot a .22 caliber target rifle.
Our closely supervised program offers thorough but relaxed, competitive training which emphasizes safe handling and operations of firearms. Club owned bolt action, single shot, .22 caliber rim fire target rifles, shooting jackets, slings, and other gear are provided.
A parent must accompany the young person to each session.
We welcome Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts seeking to earn firearms merit badges. This program is open to all juniors (club membership is not required). The Junior Club meets every Friday at 7 pm during the school year and is closed for school holidays and inclement weather. Registrations are accepted any Friday.
In view of recent Connecticut
Legislative changes, the Ramapoo Junior Rifle Program will be unable
to provide ammunition for the Program until such time as a qualified
opinion letter from the State Police, other appropriate regulatory
agency or valid authority is received. Therefore, in order to
participate in the program, each parent will be required to purchase
and supply the ammunition used by their son or daughter.
Standard/low velocity .22 LR caliber rim fire bullets are acceptable
for the type of target rifle shooting we do. Instruction and all of
the other equipment such as rifles, shooting jackets, targets,
slings, mats, range time, etc., will, for the present, be furnished
without charge by Ramapoo. A modest program fee may be put in place
later in the shooting season depending on operational costs.
