Also consider a local air rifle program.
I'm not talking BB gun stuff, I'm talking $3,500 air rifles you can shoot in the Olympics with.
It goes right along with .22 small bore competition and if you kid wants to shoot in college (there are 34 NCAA rifle teams with scholarships) he will need to be shooting both air rifle and smallbore.
The CMP, NRA, and USA Shooting are good places to start looking for a local club. Also may VFW, American Legion, and 4H run air rifle programs.
