This is what all school districts should be doing.

"It is an Olympic sport, football is a good sport, but this is just a different type of athlete."
:txflag:

When averaged out over it's lifespan, $78,000 is very affordable for schools that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on athletic budgets per year. We need these teams in every major school across the state. If Texas fails in our DUTY to teach the youth about shooting sports, the anti's will do their best to brainwash them.
He said the 20 students on his shooting team go through 10,000 pellets a week.
That's like 500 pellets/shooter/week with good coaching to reach an Olympic proficiency. Very affordable with air guns/airsoft/dryfire. It mostly takes commitment to reach a high level of competency. I like to shoot 500+ a week airsoft or live fire. Its fun!

I’m pretty sure the pellets are .177. They have put their practice to use and proven themselves. Good job.
