4 Day Practical Rifle

This challenging 4-day course will help you polish your fundamentals so that you can effectively defend your environment with your chosen rifle/carbine in hand!

The change to the Prerequisites will be EFFECTIVE 01 January 2019. A Distinguished Graduate certificate in Practical Rifle and taking Fundamentals of Precision Rifle will no longer qualify you for Precision Rifle. You must meet the new prerequisites, (Distinguished Graduate in the four day Rifle Marksmanship course and take Precision Rifle Fundamentals at least once), or previous attendance in Precision Rifle will also satisfy the new prerequisites.

Cost: $2,000.00

Prerequisite Class(s): None - entry level course

ALL students must show photo ID at Sign-In, regardless of age!

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.
