First Steps Rifle

What fundamental Skills will I learn during this course?  All range fees, and ammo paid by the student.

Cost: 165.00 pp  Excellent beginners course.

Position, Grip, Sight Alignment, Breath Control, Trigger Squeeze, Follow Through.  You will learn how to make sure if a firearm is loaded, or unloaded.  This course is a great one for those who are either not sure of full commitment or do not have enough time.  Once again this is not a full certification course.  If you want a more in – depth course than enroll for the full Basic Rifle course which is 5-7 hours.

First Steps Rifle is 3.5 hours in length, however class time varies upon the size of the group, and how fast you learn the skills, average 1.5 hours, then off to the range for an hour of live fire.

You have a choice of either   AR-15 Rifle or Ruger Mini -14 Rifle.  Both are equipped with either long range scope, or E-O Tech  sights. Caliber is either 223, or the more expensive 5.56 NATO rounds.
