NRA Basic Rifle Course
Students learn NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; rifle parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; shooting from the bench rest, prone, sitting, standing and kneeling positions; cleaning, and continued opportunities for skill development. Students will receive the Basics of Rifle Shooting handbook, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure, Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification booklet; take a Basics of Rifle Shooting Student Examination, and course completion certificate.
Required Materials: We provide a 22.caliber rifle, eye protection, and ear protection for all participants. Each student is responsible for providing their own ammunition (approximately 100 rounds of .22 caliber ammunition) which should be secured prior to the class date.
Students are also welcome to bring their own rifle (any caliber and corresponding ammunition), eye protection and ear protection to the class. All firearms should be left in their vehicles until told to retrieve them by an instructor.
