NRA Basic Rifle Course

This eight (8) hour class teaches students the 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. It also covers continued opportunities for skill development.

Students will receive the Basics of Rifle Shooting handbook, NRA Gun Safety Rules brochure, Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification booklet. You will take a Basics of Rifle Shooting Student Examination, and course completion certificate.

This is a great beginner rifle class to learn the basics or refresh your skills. This class is also a prerequisite to be an NRA Certified Rifle Instructor. This class is rarely offered in Rhode Island, so take advantage of this opportunity before it’s gone!

We can provide use of a 22-caliber rifle and 22 caliber ammunition free of charge, or students can bring their own firearm and ammunition. We do NOT provide ammo larger than .22 caliber if you bring your own firearm (approximately 100 rounds).
