What is the 4-H S.A.F.E. Shotgun Program?

The 4-H S.A.F.E. Shotgun Program is a Georgia 4-H Project S.A.F.E sport. S.A.F.E. stands for Shooting Awareness, Fun and Education. The program introduces 4-H'ers to the sport of shooting; promotes shooting safety; develops discipline, poise, and self-control, and re-enforces the concept of teamwork and good sportsmanship.
