This course introduces the AR15 semi-auto rifle to the student and expands on the NRA FIRST Steps Rifle Orientation Course. The student will complete the NRA course and will receive an NRA course completion certificate. This course will focus on the AR15 and cover in more detail other aspects of marksmanship such as ballistics, optics, and zeroing sights. The objective of this course is to instruct the student on their own rifle. However, if the student does not have his/her own rifle, then they can borrow one of ours, 20 rounds of ammo are included. This is not a complete rifle course as taught in the more comprehensive NRA Basic Rifle Shooting Course but will provide the student with all the information needed to safely handle and operate an AR15 as well as marksmanship skills needed to shoot the rifle accurately. The student must provide ammunition. The student is encouraged to enroll in the Basic Rifle Shooting Course if he/she wishes to expand their knowledge of rifle marksmanship and competition shooting.
