Rifle 125 (Basic Rifle) – Two Day (Richmond, IN)

May 20, 2017 @ 8:00 amMay 21, 2017 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Rifle 125 (Basic Rifle) Overview

Prerequisites: None

Equipment: Bring 150 to 200 rounds of ammunition per day and a safe rifle.  It is helpful that all ammunition be of the same type (i.e. same weight, manufacturer, etc) for this event.  Our volunteers have identified several accessories that may be helpful at this type of event.   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.

Overview:  This 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.  Rifle 125 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 Rifle Qualifier
  • Two Day Only:  Intermediate calculation of minutes of angle for precise sight adjustments at all ranges
  • Two Day Only:  Introduction to Field Shooting, to include basic ballistics and live firing to 100 yards (both paper and steel targets)
  • Two Day Only:  As time allows, there may be additional opportunities to engage in challenging competitions to include the Rifle Qualifier, Classic Carbine Qualification, Battle Rattle, and/or Field Shoot

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.
