Our first prize goes to a well deserved home
Our first contest winner was Dale S. from Montana. Dale received a Gamo Silentcat .177 air rifles thanks in part to sponsorship from Trenier Outdoors. Our contest winner was chosen at random, at which time Dale was given 48 hours to respond for us to verify his eligibility.
I was able to take a few shots before I mounted the scope and was quite surprised when the Crosman Destroyer pellets went supersonic! I don’t know if it was the altitude (4000 ft) or what, but my Gamo Big Cat has never done that with those pellets.” – Dale S.
It sounds like Dale has quite the beast of a rifle on his hands.
Dale was nice enough to share a little bit about himself, as well as his history and experience with airguns.
Thanks again for chosing me as your first prize winner. I have been an airgun shooter for 50+ of my 60 years and for the last several years have been involved with the local 4H Shooting Sports program teaching kids from 9-18 the safe and rewarding hobby of shooting air rifles!
For those who are unaware, 4-H is a national program offered through state Cooperative Extension offices. The mission of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens.
The National 4-H Shooting Sports Program stands out as an example program. Youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of hunting and archery, and much more. The activities of the program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics.

Congratulations once again Dale, and a big heartfelt THANK YOU from AirgunsARP.com for helping to educate our future leaders on joy of airgunning.
