The Junior Pistol program is designed to teach our junior shooters how to properly and safely handle a pistol.  Shooters need not bring anything, except themselves, and a parent or guardian. Minors can attend with a valid signed and dated permission slip [Click Here].

Escondido Fish and Game Association provides everything else!

  • All equipment required for the pistol match (including pistols, ammunition, spotting scope, etc.)  is supplied by EF&GA
  • Eye and ear protection
  • A coach for each shooter.

The course of fire consists of 20 rounds slow fire and 20 rounds rapid fire on paper targets, fired from the standing position.

Participants must be able to handle the association pistols (or their own pistols) safely without props, sandbags, or other supports. 

Safety Class

We offer a safety/familiarization class for our new and beginning shooters.  All new shooters to the Jr. Pistol program must go through the class (once) before being allowed to shoot.
