Troop 466 Jr. Rifle Club (1960 - 1969)

From the Troop Archives...

A few years ago, I had read somewhere that for many years, in the Montgomery County High Schools, the US Department of Defense (US Army - Director of Civilian Marksmanship) encouraged and supported Rifle Clubs.

These clubs would teach student the basics of gun safety and marksmanship.

It seems that Troop 466 during that time participated in such a club. The Scouts used .22 caliber rifles at Montgomery Blair High School.

Were you a Scout at that time? Do you remember this? If yes, please put a comment in the combox and let us know. Thanks!
