Do you let your Jr shooters take home their club-owned rifles?
If you do, how has that gone?

We have the parents write a check for the replacement amount, and sign an agreement. We hold that check until the we get the gun back at the end of the season. We've never had to cash a check. However 4H rules won't let us do that anymore, so officially we had to stop.

With the school ROTC program it hasn't been an issue for my kids to borrow the rifles.
I think that they view it no differently than signing out a textbook or band instrument.
If something happens to any of that stuff, no diploma until it's paid for...

Yes we do. Parents sign an agreement that if a rifle is damaged in their possession they are responsible for cost of repairs. I had to have one gun sent to get cleaned/tested when it was returned with heavy rust. Cost about $200 to repair.

I also have air rifles they are allowed to take home as long as they show proof they are using it at home.

I have a few scatt's that juniors are allowed to take home and practice with... again, they need to show that they are using it.

No problems, it is signed out to the parents.
I have 2 signed out at this time.
