First Steps Rifle
First Steps Rifle is designed to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe handling and proper orientation to one specific rifle action type for small classes. This course is at least three hours long and includes classroom and range time learning to shoot a specific rifle action type.
Fundamentals of Rifle Marksmanship
Fundamentals of Rifle Marksmanship is aimed at younger and novice shooters who will have the opportunity to participate the Southern Illinois NRA YHEC Team. This course contains the steps needed to take someone with little or no knowledge of rifles or marksmanship and elevate them to a level of confidence that will make them ready for the more common two day Revere’s Riders Rifle 125 (Basic Rifle) events and formal competition (CMP, NRA Rimfire, etc.).
This combined course is 9 hours long and includes classroom as well as range time learning to shoot a specific rifle action type. Students will learn:
- rules for safe gun handling
- parts of a rifle and their operation
- clearing common malfunctions
- shooting fundamentals
- cleaning a rifle
Continued opportunities for skill development will also be presented.
At the end of the day, students will have a chance to shoot the Morgan’s 13 classifier and see how their skills have improved!
