Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports

Scott Francis

Phone: (406) 994-3518

Cell: (406) 581-6845

Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports is one of the largest projects in Gallatin County. On average, we have about 150 to 200 4-H youth enrolled in shooting sports yearly. The program offers the following disciplines for members: air rifle, air pistol, small-bore rifle, small-bore pistol, archery, shotgun, muzzle-loading, hunting and wildlife, and western heritage. Highly trained and certified adult volunteers run these projects to provide youth with the best possible opportunity to experience top-quality instruction.

 

The 4-H youth are associated with caring adults and fellow shooters to learn the safe and ethical use of archery equipment and firearms. Many needs must be met to provide the fantastic experiences in positive youth development available in 4-H shooting sports. It continues to get more expensive to find places to meet, maintain equipment, and purchase new and improved supplies.

 

On behalf of Gallatin County 4-H Shooting Sports, we sincerely thank MWA for supporting our program. We could not do the positive things that we do for 4-H youth without the dedication and encouragement of the MWA members. For further information, please contact Scott Francis at (406) 581-6845.

Firearm Instruction (Course for Concealed Weapons Permit)

This class meets the Gallatin County training requirement to apply for a Montana CWP. This class is designed for people who have little or no experience with handguns.

 

Upon successful completion, you will receive a document certifying your basic knowledge of handgun safety, handgun shooting, and Montana’s self-defense and carry laws.

 

The class consists of online instruction, in-person training, and live-fire exercises at the Logan Range. There is a $60 NRA fee for the online portion of the class, but the range provides handguns and ammunition to students who have not yet obtained a suitable firearm.

 

We will put you on the list for the next available spot in a class if you are interested. Contact Bob Hall directly for more information.

Practical Shooting Logo
(There is currently no director for USPSA.  Experienced persons wishing to direct USPSA matches can contact any MWA board member.)

The United States Practical Shooting Association (and its parent organization International Practical Shooting Confederation) is where handgun speed-shooting devotees gather. To get started, you need your favorite handgun, a belt and holster, eye and ear protection, and lots of ammo. You may shoot around a barrier, through a window, with your weak hand, at a disappearing target, and even from a rusted-out old car! Always against the clock, you’ll need to reload along the way, “run and gun” from target bank to target bank, knockdown steel plates, keep from shooting “good guy” targets swinging in front of “bad guy” targets, and much, much more. This fast-paced sport is dominated by semi-automatics, both factory stock and customized, but revolver shooters are also welcome and have their own shooting class.

IDPA is the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated real world self-defense scenarios using practical handguns and holsters that are suitable for self-defense use. The main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual.

Pheasants Forever

Don Walker

Phone: (602) 882-5453

The purpose of this program is to develop responsible bird hunters that contribute to our environmental future with involvement in habitat improvement and protection for upland birds and other wild species. Youth completing the program will also learn the skills needed to be a safe hunter in most bird hunting situations.

 

Fifteen youth between the ages of 11 and 15 will be chosen from successful graduates of Hunters’ Education Program Spring 2021 or prior graduates in Gallatin or Park Counties. Recommendations by their Hunters’ Education instructors to participate in the program are encouraged. One of the many criteria for the selection process is based on providing the opportunity to youth who would have a difficult time learning the skills taught in this program at home.

 

All youth selected must have a valid Montana hunting license for upland game in their possession by September 18, 2022. All youth will be asked to join Pheasants Forever as a youth member at no cost and will receive several Pheasants Forever magazines designed for youth on Bird Habitat. Any youth at any time may be removed from the program at the sole discretion of Pheasants Forever.

Rifle, High Power Competition, Civilian Marksmanship Program, and Junior Shoots

(No Coordinator at this time; contact any MWA Board Member if you are interested in this position.)


The Headwaters Rifle Club & Jr. Division is a high-power shooters group. It is affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).

The CMP is chartered to promote the education and training of youth in the proper and safe use and handling of firearms. It is also the organization that has the authority to sell surplus military firearms, ammunition, and related equipment to its affiliated clubs.

So, if you are interested in owning a piece of history, join us in one of our fun shoots with military rifles to get qualified to purchase your own M1 Garand, M1 30 caliber carbine, or any of the other firearms that CMP sells. The club has rifles you can use and ammo you can buy to join in the fun. Membership is only $10 per person or $20 for a family. You must also be a member of the MWA.

Women on Target

NRA developed the Women on Target (WOT) program because of persistent calls from women that wanted to learn about shooting or hunting, preferably in the company of other women.  WOT clinics are designed to give you a safe, friendly, and fun introduction to shooting sports.
