Cowboy Action Shooting
Only authorized as a special Council Event
The BSA has strict guidelines on how shooting sports are conducted, who is authorized to run these events and what events can be run. Some shooting events can only be performed by Venturing Scouts or at special Council Events. Others, like firing air rifles, .22 rifles, 12 gauge shotguns and archery can be run as a Troop event.
NRA Basic and NRA Instructors Courses
NRA Basic courses for Rifle and for Shotgun are available at scout camp most months of the year. These courses cover the basics of safe firearm handling and cover most of of the merit badge material for their respective firearm. For Adults interested in becoming an Instructor or for youth interested in becoming a Junior Instructor, come speak with our Shooting Sports Team. If you are interested in other disciplines, such as Black Powder or Pistol, come speak with our Team.
