AUSTIN TX – A Girl & A Gun (AG & AG) announces that 14-year-old Jenna Jones, an AG & AG Youth Member from Comfort, TX, is the recipient of scholarship from AG & AG to be a 2A Heritage camper. Jenna earned High Junior at 3-Gun University on March 19, at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park.
The 2017 2A Heritage Junior Camps will take place this summer in Forest Lake, MN, and Topton, PA. Only 25 campers will be accepted into each event. Classes will take place on the first two days, followed by a match-style shoot on the last day. Juniors will receive instruction on pistol, rifle, shotgun (basic), long-range rifle, shotgun on the move/slugs/buckshot, advanced pistol skills, and transitions and stage planning.
“AG & AG has welcomed thousands of women into the shooting community, so we have seen an increase in family participation as well,” says Julianna Crowder, Founder of AG & AG. “Shooting sports have traditionally been a family activity; however, over the past 20 years, participation tapered so that most children only touched on marksmanship with pellet guns at summer camps. 2A Heritage gives juniors the shooting skills at the highest level. We are proud to support their programs to educate the next generation of competitive shooters.”
AG & AG sponsors the 2A Heritage website and will host a pizza dinner for the participants and their parents during the events. More information can be found at www.2AHeritage.org and AG & AG Youth Memberships.
