Grapevine, TX – American Sportsman Shooting Center, home of the nation’s only indoor, live-fire cinema range, has announced a summer Youth Shooting Academy, presented by K-5 Arms Exchange, that will be conducted from July 20 – August 13, 2015. Each weekly session will introduce and educate young shooters between the ages of 13 and 18 in basic rifle fundamentals, and safe gun handling. Students will learn from Sportsman Shooting Center’s experienced NRA certified instructors, utilizing modern indoor electronic range facilities.
In additional to outstanding rifle instruction, students will have an opportunity to win a portion of over $16,000 in sponsored prizes. The top student in each session will win a “Radical AR-15” rifle provided by TK Tactical and valued at $1,000. The top overall student of the summer academy will win a Blaser R8 Professional rifle package (valued at $4,500) courtesy of Blaser USA, as well as a guided Oryx hunt donated by Droptine Ranch in Trent, TX (valued at $7,500). Total prize value for the Overall Top Shooter is $12,000.
“A high level of rifle instruction, and close attention to a shooter’s needs are what you expect from the American Sportsman Shooting Center,” said Steven Giordano, Executive Vice President of the American Sportsman Shooting Center. “Very few shooting centers in the world can offer what we have: a 100 yard indoor sighting tunnel, a laser simulator, and the nation’s only full size, live-fire cinema projection rifle range make this an unbeatable location to develop outstanding shooters. The fact that these students will also have a chance to win the level of prizes offered by our generous sponsors just makes a great opportunity even better.”
