October Texas Camp – Shooting

Practice Makes Progress
Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. – Proverbs 4:25-27
But first and most importantly seek His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you also. – Matthew 6:33
15 Years in Storage
This month in Texas, we were focused on creating beauty from ashes. This boat was donated to us by a local Granbury citizen. He is in his mid 80’s, tore the boat apart about 15 years ago, put it in storage where it found its resting place until he found out our need/want to bless our campers with a learning tool and a continued blessing.
We started our day with in-class training on all things shotguns. We were trained by an NRA-certified trainer on all the parts of a shot gun, safety, how to carry it, and how to lead birds when using it for hunting.
Applying The Basics
Next, we hit the range. We went 1 by 1 with practicing what we were taught in class. This is all in preparation for our next camp, when they will be applying these skills in real-life duck hunting.
Stepping It Up a Notch
Once our campers got the basics down we went through multiple different flight patterns and numbers of clay targets. We wanted them to learn in the closest, realistic environment as possible. They also got to shoot a variety of shotguns, pump, semi-auto, and an over/under.
What a month of life change, speaking identity, teaching trades, sending young men down a new trajectory, and sharing the love of Jesus.
