Jun 20–21 2015
Nampa Rod and Gun Club (Outdoor), 7990 Bennett Road, Nampa, Idaho, United States

Basic Rifle course

Basic Rifle Overview

Prerequisites: None

Estimated Ammunition Required: 200-250 rounds/day, and a safe rifle

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: 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 Freedom Bell Classifier
    25 Yard Qualification Test
    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 Qualification Test, Battle Rattle, and/or Field Shoot

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 4 MOA groups under time pressure from a variety of practical field positions. At this range, shooting will be at 25 yards, so a rimfire rifle is just fine.

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.
