Want to learn to compete in Service Rifle from a National Champion and Queens Medalist? Want to learn how easy making points at 500m really is?
This will be a small class size, high instructor ratio, two day intro course. Instructors are both previous members of the Canadian Armed Forces Combat Shooting Team qualifying for and competing at multiple international competitions. Our goal is steepening the learning curve and giving participants a solid foundation on which to build their performance in the future. The course will be based on the “Cougar Musket” training program previously used by 39 CBG to prepare new soldiers for competition at the provincial level as part of selection for National Level events.
Topics to be covered will include:
- safe and efficient weapons handling
- principles of marksmanship
- positional shooting
- gear selection
- developing a training plan
- developing a mental plan
- target operation and scoring
- match conduct including deliberate, snap, rapid, run downs, and moving targets.
- external ballistics (drop, wind drift, mirage)
- and more.
Participants will require a pen, note book, serviceable firearm (ideally semi auto, magazine fed, with adjustable irons or scope), 3 mags minimum (+6 preferred), a way to carry mags (belt pouch/ chest rig ect), 400 rnds of ammo, Binoculars or spotting scope or 4x power rifle optic for scoring purposes. Environmental clothing (plan on being outside all day regardless of weather). And a backpack to carry everything a shooter needs for the day.
As no food or water is available at the range, participants will need to show up with both each day.
BCRA membership required and the cost is included in the ticket price. Membership fee will be refunded to current members.
