Gun fit is the most important part of selecting a shotgun for your shooter. Ensure the weight, length of pull and stock height at the comb fit before you purchase. Consult coaches for further information and recommendations. 

These are just examples and not meant to restrict a shooter to a specific model or promote a specific brand. Shooters should be able to handle the firearm safely and control the movement with ease. Coaches can provide shotguns for use while on the range. Availability is limited so we encourage participants to bring their own shotguns. Athletes will also learn proper care and cleaning and will be responsible for cleaning firearms after every use. 

WSA will provide safety glasses and foam ear plugs. Athletes may provide their own ear and eye protection. Ear and Eye protection is required when shooting and when on the range. 

Although we provide safety glasses at the beginning of the program, it is strongly recommended that each participant who intends to continue in shooting sports, that you invest in safety glasses with interchangeable lenses of different colors. This allows the shooter to adjust to different lighting and weather conditions. Ear protection: There are many different options but the two basic types are “over the ear” muffs and “in the ear” plugs.
