    Hi there, can anyone recommend a group in the Slidell or nearby area to get my 9 yr old marksman involved in? Hes most interested (and proficient) in rifle shooting.

    Thanks in advance

    I went through this with my 8 year old. Most competition ages started at 16. What I found was cowboy action which has a buckaroo age group for 8 and up

    Contact 4H. They have good youth shooting programs. David Boldt is the head of 4H shooting in the state. His office number is 225-578-2196.

    If there is no 4H shooting program in the Slidell are, you should think about starting one. I have been contacted by a number of parents in that area and I think the interest is there. I can help you acquire the equipment. Just let me know.

    When the kids are 13 (if they are big) or 14, send them to the highpower program.

    Try the Junior Deputy program of your local Sheriff office. The EBRSO Jr. Deputy program used to teach rifle marksmanship.

    Thanks, im going to give him a call, someone else had mentioned 4-H before, and i never followed through, my sons been shooting since he was tiny, his personal guns now are a Mossberg .243, and a Mosin Nagant Sniper, and hes dead on with both of those.

    p.s. he loves shooting the Barrett .50 ;)
