The annual Youth Shooting Sports and Outdoor Expo will be held on Sunday, May 21, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, at the Deer Creek Shooting Range, 6238 Shooting Center Lane in Missoula. This is going to be a great way to try out some new gear, get some valuable instruction, and have lots of fun.

This is a totally free event. Activities will not only include an opportunity to try pistols, rifles, air guns and archery gear, but also a large number of other topics, like firearm safety, fly casting and bear identification. And all of the the equipment, including ear and eye protection and ammo, is provided.

The Western Montana Fish and Game Association will also be holding prize drawings.  This is a family event and free for everyone.
