2-day Basic Rifle (Crittenden, KY)

Nov 25, 2016 @ 8:30 amNov 26, 2016 @ 4:30 pm EST

2-day Basic Rifle Overview

Prerequisites: None

Estimated Ammunition Required:  No more than 500 rounds (25 yards), 100 rounds (suitable for up to 300 yards), and a safe rifle.

You may want to bring centerfire rifles and ammunition for this event, as the range goes to 300 yards. We will use the longer range facilities primarily on Sunday after learning the fundamentals at 25 yards.

2-day Basic Rifle includes classroom and range time learning to shoot rifles. Students learn:

  • Rules for safe gun handling & range rules
  • Rifle parts and operation & ammunition
  • Shooting fundamentals: Five steps to firing each shot
  • Natural Point of Aim
  • Shooting from the prone, standing and sitting/kneeling positions to include use of the sling
  • Introduction to Sight Adjustments and basic calculation of minutes of angle
  • 25 Yard “Morgan’s 13” Classifier
  • 25 Yard Qualification Test
  • Intermediate calculation of minutes of angle for precise sight adjustments at all ranges
  • Introduction to Field Shooting, to include basic ballistics and live firing to longer distances (if the range facility permits)
  • As time allows, there may be additional opportunities to engage in challenging competitions to include the Qualification Test, Battle Rattle, and/or Field Shoot

This is our signature offering, based on traditional American riflecraft that teaches “Hits Count!” It is appropriate for a wide breadth of student skill levels. This course lays a sound foundation for students to shoot groups under time pressure from a variety of practical field positions.

Shooting will primarily be at 25 yards.  At some facilities, it may be possible to move out to longer distances, but a rimfire rifle should be just fine for all activities.

The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

Hear the true story of Paul Revere’s famous ride and learn about the events that immediately precipitated the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere did not ride alone – many individuals played crucial roles in the events of April 19th, 1775.

This history presentation begins with alarm riders warning “the Regulars are out!” You’ll hear about the dramatic stand on Lexington Green and the “shots heard ’round the world” at Concord’s North Bridge. The tale concludes with harrowing life-or-death choices made along the 17 mile “battle road.”

This exciting tale will be woven throughout the day’s marksmanship events.

Additional Range Information

No camping on grounds. No food for sale on grounds. Potable water and restroom facilities at the clubhouse (approx. 1/2 mile from range bay).
