Youth hunter programs are always a good idea!

Youth hunter programs are always a good idea!  This sounds like a good program to me.  I applaud them for making the required safety gear available for sale at the range.  That is a far better plan than turning away a young shooter who comes to participate but who lacks the gear or just plain forgot to bring it with them.  Good job state of Indiana!  Keep up the good work!
