Hallsville, Missouri -
This weekend the Columbia Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club played host to the National Rifle Association’s 2009 National Action Shooting Championships at their Hallsville range.
This was not the first time crowds and cameras have descended upon this Missouri town of 978 people.
The facility hosted several episodes of “American Shooter” when it was on the Tennessee Nashville Network (the show was later moved to the Outdoor Living Network before it was cancelled). It regularly hosts state and regional championships, the Glock Regional Classic shooting competition, and the shooting competitions for the Show-Me State Games, an Olympic-style event for Missouri amateur athletes.
For the more casual sportsman, the Green Valley club also hosts NRA marksmanship training and Missouri Department of Conservation-sponsored hunter education courses.
The Columbia Green Valley Rifle and Pistol Club has been a long-standing supporter of the NRA, and the NRA has supported them back. The organization purchased the Hallsville facility with loans and grants from the National Rifle Association. The Hallsville facility has twelve different ranges, one of which is a rifle range.
The Club encourages anyone with questions about the club to email or call (573) 696-3738 or visit their Web site at www.gvshoot.com.
