Introduction to the Basic Rifle

This one day course is designed for anyone with little, to no experience, with a rifle.  Unless acceptable proof of training is available, this class should be considered a prerequisite for all other rifle classes offered by PPC.  Course content begins with basic safe gun handling rules and techniques. It goes on to cover the basic parts and functioning of various types of rifle actions, (single shot, bolt action, lever action and semi-automatic); how to sight your rifle in; establishing a proper hold, cheek weld, breathing, and aiming techniques for an accurate shot; the six basic rifle trigger manipulations; how to clear various malfunctions; and various rifle fighting positions. 

Equipment needed: Preferably a magazine fed, military style, semi-automatic rifle, however since this is a basic class, any type action (lever action, bolt action, etc.) or caliber, including pistol caliber carbines and .22 cal. rifles are acceptable for this class.  A sling is mandatory for your rifle, tactical slings (where the rifle hangs in front of you) are preferable, but a standard sling ( where rifle hangs over one shoulder) is acceptable. Eye and ear protection and a hat or cap with a brim.  Red dot sights are acceptable and encouraged for this class, but magnified scopes are not.  Backpack full of rags, towels old clothes, etc. and old towel to lay on that you don’t mind getting dirty or damaged.  Ammunition requirements: 250 rds of non-armor piercing ammo (no SS109 ,M-855, or other steel core ammo).
All ammo should be non-magnetic, and will be tested with a magnet.  Also, if you are renting one of my Rifles, make sure you consult with me BEFORE purchasing your ammo​.
