The VHA theme is Get Involved, Make a Difference. This month, we are talking about The Villages Air Gun Club.

The mission of The Villages Air Gun Club is to foster development of air gun shooting by providing opportunities for members and guests. The Club provides a safe venue for shooting, organized shooting competitions, fellowship, good sportsmanship, and opportunities for family activities while keeping firearm safety paramount in pursuit of all these activities.

The Club meets in March, June, September, and December, on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00pm at the Sea Breeze Recreation Center.
