Randall County 4-H Shooting Club gets donation after ammunition gets stolen

Local News

Earlier this week the Randall County 4-H Shooting Club had $4,000 worth of ammunition stolen from them.

After hearing about this unfortunate event, the Dallas Safari Club made a generous donation to help out.

The DSC purchased and donated 80 cases of shotgun shells to the shooting club, which was the amount that was stolen. 

The ammunition will be used to teach young kids firearm safety and help them practice for upcoming skeet and trap shooting competitions.

Shooting Club Coach Kevin Heflin said without this donation, their season could have been in jeopardy.

“It’s such a bad event that happened to us and getting broken into. It’s a big win for us because I didn’t know what we were going to do replace these shells,” said Heflin.

“All we did was bring them back to where they were before. They can always use some extra help. I know that right now that they’ve been reaching out for donations whether it’s cash or shells or whatever. I would hope that the public would keep helping,” said Panhandle Chapter President of DSC, Brandon Boyles.

Heflin also said they are now back on track to compete for their first shooting event which will be in a couple of weeks.
