6th Annual White County Farm Bureau Young Leader pistol shoot this Saturday

The 6th Annual Young Leader Pistol Shoot will be held this Saturday, July 16, 2016 at the Carmi Rifle Club in Carmi, IL.

The event will include two age classes… an adult class, and a youth class for shooters aged 16 years and younger. Minimum age for shooters is 12 years old. Any shooter age 16 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. Registration forms can be downloaded at

Each shooter will be put in a drawing for a Browning Buck Mark .22 target pistol. The top shooter in each class will receive an additional 5 chances in the drawing; the 2nd place shooter in each class will receive an additional 3 chances; and the 3rd place shooter in each class will receive one additional chance.

This steel target competition will consist of 5 stations, 5 relays, with 5 targets at each station (minimum of 125 shots). Each round will be electronically timed. After lunch, participants will test their aim in a marksmanship competition, with accuracy being the deciding factor, not speed. Event registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with competition set to begin at 9:00 a.m.

Registration is $35 per person. Registration includes lunch.

Shooters will need to furnish their own guns, ammunition, hearing protection, and eye protection. Only .22 caliber pistols are allowed to be used in this competition. In order to have ammunition ready while competing, it is recommended you bring multiple clips for your gun. Ammunition will be available for sale at our cost (no markup)
