This course is designed to prepare the defensive rifleman for the safe handling and use of this specialized weapon.

It has been said that by reducing necessities, we can afford luxuries; such is not the case in shooting. For only by learning the necessities–the fundamentals–can you afford the luxury of excellence. Almost anyone can “fire” a rifle and almost everyone who is capable of pointing their finger at an object can learn to shoot. However it takes determination, reliable equipment and most importantly instruction from a qualified teacher to become a competent rifle shooter.

The emphasis of this course is on defensive rifle handling and shooting skills. Most of this class is on short to medium ranges, rapid target-acquisition, improvised shooting positions, “snapshooting” and more deliberate fire. Defensive situations are always emergencies, so we must also put considerable emphasis on speed. The rifle must be mounted quickly, fired quickly (but accurately!) and the shooter must always automatically prepare to fire again quickly. We will not ignore shooting in excess of one hundred meters completely, but we will concentrate on the shorter ranges. There will be single and multiple targets and students will have an opportunity to practice rational decision making.
