Phoenix New Times' Description
The junior marksmen program at Rio Salado Sportsman's Club focuses on small-bore (.22-caliber) rifle shooting, and boasts some of the best junior marksmen in Arizona. Shooters who've gone through the program at Rio Salado include two-time National Junior Olympics competitor Tanya Gorin; Christine Costello, who recently graduated from the University of Nebraska on a full scholarship from the Huskers rifle team; and Joyce Kim, who was named Smallbore Junior of the Year by the Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association in 2008. The program is for marksmen ages 10 through 20, and focuses on safety first: the coaches, who include Ed Roberts and Myles Gorin, are all certified through the National Rifle Association and say they've never had a single accident in the junior program. The club operates on 140-acres of land that's actually owned by the Arizona Fish and Game Department and includes covered shooting benches, a pistol range, long rifle and pistol silhouette ranges, indoor rifle range, restrooms, activity center, training classrooms and more.
Tips from foursquare
Nice safe place to shoot. Rangemasters are there to help you and keep everyone safe.
The rangemasters are no joke except that they think they're funny and will harass anyone and everyone. You need to keep your crap in-line
Bring lots of ammo.
Avoid benches 1 - 15 when the obnoxious .50 cals and their owners are here on bench 1
Be sure to bring safety glasses along with you however, they have ear plugs available for purchase at a nominal fee.
