Last week, the Rocky Mountain Rifle Club was formally recognized for their sponsorship and support of the local 4-H Shooting Program. The members of the club joined with 4-H shooters in welcoming Robin Baker of Senator Steve Daines’ office. Recently, Senator Daines took to the floor of the Senate to read his recognition of the Rocky Mountain Rifle Club into the Congressional Record as “Montanan of the Week.” Ms. Baker presented the club with an official copy and read the document, explaining the process of entering the honor into the record.
The local 4-H program has some of the top shooters in the state. The 4-H program uses highly accurate pellet rifles while the Rocky Mountain Rifle Club competes using specialized 22LR caliber target rifles. The Rifle Club has an indoor facility in the Greenfield area. Anyone interested in joining the Rocky Mountain Rifle Club or the 4-H target shooting program should contact Fred Ginther, Alan Peace, or Brian Bedord.
