Learn .22 Rifle Safety and Operation Techniques at the MDC Workshop on September 6


Colombia, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites the public to learn the basics of shooting and maintaining a .22 rifle at the Rocky Fork Range on September 6 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Participants will learn rifle safety, operating techniques, basic shooting principles, maintenance, and safe storage practices. MDC personnel will provide all equipment and ammunition, but participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment and ammunition to the live-fire event.

.22 rifles are popular tools for hunting small game or practicing target shooting. These rifles tend to have very little “kick”, making them great starter rifles for people getting used to shooting a rifle.

This event is designed for ages 11 and up, with a guardian present required for participants aged 11-18. Pre-registration is required and the link to register is at https://short.mdc.mo.gov/4Tm. For questions or more information, contact the instructor for this event at [email protected]

The Rocky Fork Range is within the Rocky Fork Lakes Conservation Area. From Columbia take Highway 63 North 7 miles then Peabody Road East 1 mile to the area.
