Want to learn how to shoot an airgun like an Olympian—or at least how to shoot an airgun from an Olympian? Regardless of age and skill level, you're invited to join USA Shooting and the MidwayUSA Foundation for an airgun training camp this coming November 10-12. Set to take place at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center (USOPTC) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, this star-studded event is sure to engage and enlilghten. Best of all, your registration fees will go directly to the MidwayUSA Foundation endowment of your choice ... an income stream that's crucial for the development of young Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
