Basic Rifle – Two Day (Seelyville, IN)

Basic Rifle Overview

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. 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: ABCs of firing the shot
  • Natural Point of Aim
  • Shooting from the prone, standing and sitting/kneeling positions
  • Introduction to Sight Adjustments and basic calculation of Minutes of Angle (moa)
  • 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 longer distances (if the range facility permits)
  • 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

Prerequisites: None

Rifle Requirements: A safely functioning, semi-automatic, magazine-fed rifle chambered in .22LR is best. The Ruger 10/22, Marlin 795, AR variants, etc., generally work best for this class but any other type of rifle (tube-fed , lever-action, bolt-action, etc.) can be used as well.

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.
