COMPLETE COURSE INFO CAN BE FOUND HERE

Please have a sling installed on your firearm, preferably a USGI web sling, attached to a pair of 1.25″ sling swivels.

See Pictures Below:

The most confusion arises when we say to bring a rifle with a USGI Web sling. A USGI web sling is a sling that has a loop on the back to be placed around your support arm to help steady the rifle when shooting. We will be covering how to use this technique extensively. You will notice that it is different from a traditional hunting sling and it is NOT a single point sling.

Here is a link that you can order one from:

The USGI web sling is 1 – 1/4″ wide so it requires the proper swivels to slide through on your gun. There can be purchased here:

Be sure to order the 1 – 1/4″ versions.

Lastly a sling swivel attaches to a sling stud. These can be purchased and installed easily on your rifle yourself or by any gunsmith:

If you have a very common rifle (AR15, 10/22) then look into special adapters like these, they will save you time and make for a neat install:

  • Students Must be able to rapidly clear Jams, as several drills are only 60 seconds long.
  • Prospective attendees that are not able to complete these procedures rapidly should NOT start with this course and should consider a private lesson OR the NRA Basic Rifle Course first.
  • Basic Function will not be covered either as a whole or one on one during this course.
  • If bringing a rifle it must be zeroed to impact 1.5″ high at 50 yards with the ammo you will be bringing
  • 200+ rounds of ammo if you are bringing your own rifle, inquire about reduced courses of fire available to save ammo.
