Marksman pin


Recommended Posts

Found in a jewelry box from my wife’s grandparents house. Could’ve been either my FIL of his brother I suppose, could have been my wife’s grandfather? I was guessing a summer camp thing.

A gun at a camp? Oh the humanity.

We shot 22LR at Camp Maxwelton where I went in the early 70's.  I made NRA Marksman as well, but I think it was a cloth badge by then.  We shot prone with the military sling and peep sights.  From their website they still offer riflery as an activity, thank goodness!  Every kid should be taught how to shoot and respect for firearms and what they can do.  Maybe there would be less craziness then (wishful thinking, I know).

When I went to 4 H camp in the late 50's The Ithaca gun company put on a program that showed us skeet shooting.  That was my first experience with shooting a shot gun. It installed a life long pleasure of hunting and enjoying trap and skeet.

4-H camp at Halsey Nebraska, we shot single shot 22s. Would have been in the late 70s. 
If you guys go through that area, stop and visit the lodge. Pretty amazing place.
