Tactical Firearms Training

Scoped Rifle I

Course Overview and Requirements

Course consists of Classroom Training, Safety Brief, and Live Fire Drills (NOTE: This course will have some very minor physical exertion)

This course is an introductory class into the proper use and operation of a scoped rifle or sniper grade rifle system. Many folks don’t care to learn sniper tactics but would like to be a better shot for plinking, varmit, or deer hunting. If this describes you then this is the class that will start you on the way. If your wanting to learn sniper tactics then you must start with the basics and first learn to crawl and this will start you with good fundamentals of scoped rifle marksmanship and preparation.

Length of course is 18.5 hours +

Items required for completion of the course

  • Scoped Rifle – Prefer a Bolt Action or Semi Auto (AR type or similar military type) in the .223, .308, & 30/06 range with a variable power scope with at least 9 power magnification. Weapons and Scopes should be of a serviceable grade, please don’t bring a gun that hasn’t been shot in 30 years (test fire before coming), we want to make sure it will fire and not hurt you or someone else. It is preferred that you have at least two magazines for semi-automatic’s, in case one fails.
  • Ammunition – minimum of 150 rounds, 200 is preferred (no unsafe ammunition that you dug out of grandpa’s footlocker, as we will not have time for you to run to the store and pick up more ammo if/when the ammo fails to fire or function in your weapon. Quality reloads are acceptable though. Match ammo is desired but I understand that there isn’t match ammo made for every caliber.
