Training Courses

    Hi, I’d like to attend basic training course for rifle use.
    I have done the basic 2 hour ‘competency’ course to support my FCA1 application.

    The only course I see advertise online is a 2 day course

    Anyone any experience with them or aware of other public courses.

    Down the road I’ll join a shooting club and guess courses will be available via membership?.

    What calibre of rifle are you buying ?
    What kind of shooting do you intend doing ?
    Where abouts in the country are you located ?

    While you are waiting on your licence , there is some very good information to be found online in forums like here or shooting sites or through books.
    My advice would be to look up, "Rifle Marksmanship Principles" and learn all you can about them so you can put them into practice when you get your rifle.

    I don't have a problem with anyone paying for tuition if that's what they want to do, but learn as much as you can from fellow shooters and reading before you go and pay the big money for a course.
