Practical Rifle

Post by clarence » Tue Sep 30, 2014 4:31 pm

Anyone familiar with Randy Cain's bolt-action rifle course?

This course is best suited to lightweight, fast handling bolt action rifles with iron sights or low power scopes. Lever rifles are also permitted.

The format explores practical marksmanship at practical distances under field conditions. Problems are addressed from near contact distance out to 400 yards maximum. It is not a "long range" shooting course.The course is suitable for the person who wishes to utilize the rifle as a defensive tool as well as the hunter in the sporting field.

We begin with curriculum including: safety, marksmanship, position shooting, sling work, and a working knowledge of practical ballistics. Once established, our focus turns to learning to fight with a "common, ordinary deer rifle."

We incorporate tactical drills which are more traditionally encountered in 'tactical rifle' or 'urban carbine' type courses for magazine fed rifles. This exercise will give the student a superior level of gunhandling and manipulations skills. It's challenging, and it's a lot of fun! (It's also one of my favorite classes to teach.)

A 3-day course. Ammunition Requirement: 500 Rounds.

It's not looting if you leave a note.

Having just gone to an Appleseed shoot, this sounds like an "Appleseed v2.0" - safety, marksmanship, position shooting, sling work, and a working knowledge of practical ballistics
