The NRA’s basic rifle class taught by a certified instructor
The Basics of Rifle Shooting Course is a nationally certified NRA course that teaches students to safely operate and shoot bolt action, semi-automatic, lever action, and more with examples of these types shown in class. You will learn about stance, grip, parts and ammunition, safety, gun care maintenance, disassembly and reassembly, proper gun storage and more. There will be a shooting qualification at the end of the day. This class will enable you to shoot safely in range environments and give you the confidence to continue building your skills. This is an excellent class for beginners and those needing a brush up. There is plenty to learn in this class even if you shoot often.
For the shooting qualification, students may shoot any caliber rifle .22LR or higher. A .22LR, such as the Ruger 10/22, is recommended for many reasons from ease of handling to ammuntion cost and availability. Rental guns available if you don’t have a rifle. Minimum 100 rounds of ammunition required. Bring more ammunition to reshoot the qualification, if needed. Course Cost: $175. The class will take approximately eight hours. Price does not include range fees, which are approximately $15-$25 and payable directly to the range. This class comes with a 150-page spiral-bound reference book.
