This class teaches the fundamentals of gun safety as well as proper aiming and firing techniques, with an emphasis on overall marksmanship and weapons manipulation. 

Course Description:

The Basic Rifle course is designed to give students an extensive introduction to gun safety and teaches the skills necessary to effectively operate a rifle-style weapon. Our skilled and highly trained instructors will help guide students through a series of hands-on exercises that are easy to understand for students of all experience levels and help instill confidence and effective shooting techniques in even the most novice of students. Our instructors understand that, for some people, simply handling a firearm of any kind can be intimidating. It is our goal to build confidence in our students by ensuring that they are taught the fundamentals of operating a carbine with accuracy, while still adhering to all gun safety rules.

By applying the basic principles of weapons manipulation, we will help each student reach their highest level of success by utilizing areas of strength and improving areas of weakness for each student. A rifle-style weapon can often be more intimidating for many people, especially for a person with no carbine handling experience. If that sounds like you, let our highly qualified team of instructors share the tips and tricks they’ve learned from years of experience to help give you the tools and confidence you need to handle, aim, and fire your weapon with accuracy and precision.

If you are someone who is already comfortable with a rifle and have firearm handling experience, our team of instructors is here to help you enhance your shooting technique and hone your marksmanship skills.

Our highly trained and well-qualified staff have decades of experience, a wealth of knowledge, and unparalleled training in firearms operation and manipulation. Let us share some of that with you.
