Kids are our future. The only way that our sport will endure is if we teach our children the how and why of safe shooting and responsible gun ownership. In times past the main theme for firearms for kids were to go hunting with dad or grandpa & seldom were women taught. Very little emphasis was put on self protection but just a fun activity in which you had to be safe. Times have changed. Now kids amuse themselves with TV & Video games and parents have to watch like a hawk just for them to play in their own front yard. Self Protection is as important as it has ever been & the days of hunting with dad or grandpa are just not as prevalent. Thus leading to fewer & fewer kids knowing or handling firearms & the love of a fun filled sport with family is slowly dying along with our voice of tomorrow.
The majority of our leaders that are keeping our 2nd amendment rights alive are between the ages of 40-60. What is to happen to our rights once this generation has passed on? Will the new younger generation be so protective of our gun rights? Do they really understand all aspects of the situation as a whole? I would like to hope so but question without the love of guns, positive experiences with firearms, and a lack of knowledge being taught to young kids today that our rights will not be fought for as hard as today’s leaders.
Target Time understands these important topics and what impact it could have on all of us if the voices of tomorrow are not as strong as voices of today. With our world getting more violent day by day, the need for self protection grows along with the passion to still be able to enjoy hunting and shooting competitions as a hobby. Thus we understand that kids are our future and part of our job to help teach the kids of today what is important for tomorrow. With that in mind we are strongly committed to be a source for training to teach kids/teens how to properly handle firearms so they may have the opportunity to explore avenues such as hunting with dad/grandpa again, or hobbies such as shooting competitions.
