Students from all over the state took to the Houston County gun range for a chance to move on to the state championship for the 4H shooting program.
Events being held at the two-day tournament include whiz-bang, skeet, and trap.
Organizers said the program helps introduce children to guns in a safe manner.
"It teaches them responsibility," said Houston County Program Director G.P. Shearer. "We teach them how to handle a gun and not be afraid of a shotgun and now they are more confident with a gun and disciplined."
Friday saw almost 80 students participate. Organizers expect 60 competitors to compete on Saturday.
