NRA Basic Rifle

This course will give you the knowledge, skills and attitude required to safely shoot and handle a rifle.

This course focuses on firearm safety and marksmanship. You will learn the how the different types of rifles function.  We cover ammunition, how it works and what type to use in various situations.  Then we get into the fundamental skills involved in rifle marksmanship.  Afer covering the fundamentals we will go out to the range for live fire practice. 

The course emphasizes firearms safety while teaching the techniques of sight alignment, breath, hold, and trigger control.

This is a 14 hour course and is meant to be covered in two (or more) days.  We can do it in one very long and fun filled day; but I recommend taking two days.  With the two day schedule we do the class room portion (minus the test) on day one and the shooting and written test on day two.

You will leave the course with a solid base upon which you can safely build your shooting skills. All course materials including targets will be provided. A firearm can also be loaned to you if needed. Ammunition is extra. A certificate of training will be awarded to all participants who successfully complete the course .
