NRA Basic Rifle Shooting

The NRA Basic Rifle Course is an essential course for all shooters to take some time in their lifetime. It provides a solid foundation for new shooters as well as an opportunity for experienced shooters to learn new skills, and gain awareness of any “bad habits” that may have gone unnoticed for years.  We couple classic NRA shooting techniques with elements that  have perfected over the years.
