Junior high power program, taught by NRA Certified instructors, is an intermediate program aimed at teaching shooting positions, correct sight pictures and the use of the sling as a precurser to shooting in the CMP division. The program is open to all juniors (boys and girls), up to the juniors 21st birthday. We shoot at a distance of 100 yards. To simulate an across the course match, we will be using reduced targets. We will be shooting in 3 different stages to simulate the distances of 200 yards, 300 yards and 600 yards. The participants will shoot standing (off hand), sitting rapid fire, prone rapid fire and prone slow fire. Full attention is required at all times and all juniors are expected to obey all commands. This is a new program at Pickaway County Sportsmen and there will not be any accidents. Juniors not abiding by these rules will be removed from the program. High power shooting is an enjoyable and competitive sport so let's be safe and have fun. The junior high power program will immediately follow the Junior Smallbore program on the dates listed on the calendar. This is not an all male sport and females are encouraged to come out and take part in this sport. As with the Junior Smallbore division, this program is FREE to all junior shooters.
The main firearm we will be using is the AR-15 although any U.S. military rifle may also be used. Pickaway County Sportsmen has two (-2-) AR-15 rifles and one (-1-) M.1 carbine for use in this program. We also have a number of M1 Garands, but this rifle is difficult for juniors to shoot so, it is strongly recommended that juniors be prepared to shoot the AR-15 rifle or the M-1 carbine. PCSI will supply the firearms, ammunition, targets, earplugs, and safety glasses. Some participant supplied equipment that will make life much easier on the shooter could include a shooting mat, shooting glove, spotting scope, shooting ear muffs and a shooting coat. Due to the nature of the rifles we will be shooting, close attention to the instruction and instructors is crucial. Safety is our number one goal. This is a more disciplined sport and there will be NO horseplay.
