THIS SPRING, the Karp & Krow 4-H Shoot Team was gifted a MEC 400 E Sporter trap.

   The NRA Foundation has awarded the Karp & Krow 4-H Shooting Team a grant totaling $1,600 to purchase a new MEC 400 E Sporter trap.  “As our shooting team expanded its presentations to include sporting clays, it became necessary to add traps to the club,” said coach Tanner Hackel, “and we are pleased that the NRA  invested in our community.”

   The Karp & Krow 4-H Shooting Team began competing in both skeet and sporting clays along with the standard trap presentations in March 2022. This diversification is drawing members to the team and enhancing their skill. Fifty-two students competed this year, and the team is excited about practicing gun efficacy and reaching their full potential in the shooting sports arena.
