Topics: marksmanship

Competitive shooting is a highly demanding activity that carries dreams of college scholarships, national championships and even Olympic Medals. Reaching that level, however, requires a tremendous amount of discipline, dedication, and precision. And it can be tough for young people to find a school or club that provides them with an opportunity to sharpen their shooting skills. The Burlington Rifle and Pistol Club offers Junior marksmanship programs. We spend time with Katie Benjamin, one of Vermont's top youth shooters at the indoor range of the National Guard Armory in Winooski where the club practices. We then spend a day at Camp Johnson where some of the country's top shooters attend a summer camp for marksmanship.
