CLYDE, Texas - Young sharpshooters from all over Texas are in Callahan County to highlight their skills at the 4-H Rifle Shoot.
This is the first time in 15 years the shoot has been held somewhere other than San Antonio. There are more than 160 shooters competing this week.
Rachel Garner has been competing in the shoot for eight years.
"I used to be super duper shy. I wouldn't even run the bases when I played tee ball and now I'm not like that at all. I'm still kind of shy, but I've leaned to come out of my shell," said Garner.
She said it's not just fun and games; there is a lot to learn as well.
"Shooting takes practice, more practice, more practice to get good at and you learn perseverance by trying and picking yourself up then you're down and when you're not having good days, not having good weeks or months or years even, you learn to push through those and look for the good moments," said Garner.
Charles Greenway has been a part of the 4-H Rifle Shoot for 20 years. He said for him it never gets old.
"Seeing the kids win, you know, I like to see the kids do well. When they do well I feel real good about it," said Greenway.
Although Garner said she's not hung up on winning, there is a little friendly competition between her and her older brother who's also competing in the shoot.
"He's good," said Garner.
The 4-H Rifle Shoot runs through the rest of this week and it is free for spectators. The range is between Clyde and Baird off of FM 18.
