Shoot­ing Sports At Koko Head Range

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER -

ment with lots of trained in­struc­tors on hand to as­sist them,” said Har­vey Ger­wig, HRA pres­i­dent. “It’s run like a car­ni­val: The par­tic­i­pants pur­chase script and then go to each of the many venues and use the script to pur­chase time on all the var­i­ous guns.”

Cost varies depend­ing on the type of gun and am­mu­ni­tion. One script, for ex­am­ple, will buy five rounds with a .22 long ri­fle or three rounds on a 9mm hand­gun.

Also avail­able are ac­tion pis­tols, air guns, high-power ri­fles, shot­guns, an­tiques, pel­let guns and more.

“We have an in­cred­i­ble ar­ray of firearms at this event with knowl­edge­able in­struc­tors stand­ing by to talk to the par­tic­i­pants about the dis­plays,” added Ger­wig.

All par­tic­i­pants must first at­tend a safety brief­ing. Chil­dren ages 6 and older can shoot the BB guns and pel­let guns; chil­dren ages 9 and up can shoot the .22 long ri­fle pis­tols and ri­fles, and chil­dren ages 12 and older can shoot all firearms as long as the in­struc­tor feels that they can han­dle them safely.

“I would like to re­it­er­ate again that all par­tic­i­pants are as­sisted and taught by ex­pe­ri­enced shoot­ers, many of whom are cer­ti­fied NRA in­struc­tors,” he said.

The HRA was es­tab­lished in 1857 and is the of­fi­cial Na­tional Ri­fle As­so­ci­a­tion­af­fil­i­ated club for the state.
