Big D Young Marines Range Day

Delaney Firearms Training was honored to hold its first, and hopefully annual, range day event for the Big D Young Marines this past Saturday, July 13th. The event was hosted by Jim Lynch and his staff at Tactical and Defensive of Texas in Canton, TX. The event was also sponsored by Randy Bryant with Avenger Firearms in Mesquite, TX, as well as the Big D Detachment of the Marine Corps League in Mesquite, TX. We could not thank these folks and organizations enough for their time and support of this event. Without them, this event would not have taken place, or been a complete success. THANK YOU!!


During the event, the Young Marines were introduced to basic rifle and pistol marksmanship and had an opportunity to fire both rifles and pistols of various calibers. During their time on the range the Young Marines performed outstanding. They listened to the instructors and range safety officers, were courteous, well mannered, and were most importantly safe. At mid day we broke for lunch and refreshments. During this time we had the opportunity to interact with and get to know the Young Marines, their command staff and the parents better. The event was a complete success and are hoping to make this an annual event.
