The NRA Foundation has awarded Bergman Shooting Sports two grants totaling $6,000 to fund range improvements, firearms, clay targets, and tracker ammunition.
A total of $3,000 will be utilized to improve the current trap range by making it handicap accessible (ADA). Currently the range is not conducive to wheelchairs. The additional $3,000 funded a Browning BT99 12-gauge trap shotgun, clay targets, and tracker rounds of ammo.
The Bergman Trap team is currently in its ninth year. The program focuses on firearm safety, character development, and leadership training. The team has demonstrated success by qualifying for state competition three of the past four years. The Junior High squad took first place at regionals last year. In 2016 they advanced one member of the junior high squad to compete for Champion of Champions round at state competition. The program is growing and improving year-over-year, said a Bergman trap team representative.
