4 Day Practical Rifle Course BA
This is the second most popular course.
This is a comprehensive 4 day course in the practical use of a rifle that will leave anyone with the comforting ability to hit what they can see.
Regardless of your skill level upon entry into the course, by its completion you`ll have the skills necessary to identify and engage threats appropriate to your weapon system from household distances up to 100 yards away in a timely fashion with first-round center hits! You`ll also be able to use your environment to your advantage with an understanding of supported shooting platforms and cover/concealment.
NOTE: To get the most out of this course, we highly recommend that you bring a magazine-fed, semi-automatic rifle/carbine (such as an AR-style or AK-style). If you prefer to use a manually operated rifle (such as a bolt, lever-action, or pump gun), we recommend taking the 4-Day Rifle Marksmanship course instead.
