Building Responsible Gun Owners – One New Shooter at a Time by Becky Yackley

Friendship, safety, and life lessons rolled into one a day at the range are all part of what the shooting sports holds for families. From spending time with peers, with parents, or with those we mentor, every firearm owner can grow in their safety skills when they attend competitive events. 

For youth, the promise is that for time spent shooting with supervised qualified Range Officers who adhere to safety measures that govern competitions, groundwork for being a lifelong gun owner with safe firearms handling skills is laid.  Furthermore, what is established are good gun habits that will be passed down for generations.

On the road more than home, Becky has competed in 3 Gun, Bianchi pistol, service-rifle, NCAA air rifle, smallbore and air pistol around the world since 1989. For her, shooting is more than an individual sport, it is a family affair. She and family travel both near and far to spread the words of safety and shooting to both friends and strangers. Shooting should be fun – this is what Becky preaches day in and day out. The “rush” of any competition highly motivates Becky, but it is the ability to share her sport and passion that truly drive her.
