Smallbore Rifle Class for Youth and Beginners

Co-Leaders: Tim & Pat Oren


What: Smallbore rifle marksmanship training. We are oriented towards the novice, but can also teach up to introductory competitive level in NRA or Olympic smallbore or light rifle styles. Class will include safety measures and can include procedures such as rifle tear down and maintenance.  All shooters begin prone with support, and progress to sling usage and other positions as progress warrants.  We shoot the Winchester/NRA Light Rifle qualification program to track progress.

Where: At the Nampa Rod and Gun Club Indoor range, 222 Railroad Ave., Nampa, ID.

When: 6:30 PM, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Mondays.  Regularly during the school year, by arrangement during summer months.

Who: Both youth (17 and under) and adults are welcome, but youth will get priority if there is a shortage of firing positions or equipment. Youth must be accompanied by a responsible adult (parent or other with medical and other permissions.) Participation is subject to the approval of the instructors.

Costs: $2/session for youth 17 and under, includes ammo. $5 per session for adults, BYO ammo.

Equipment: Any safe rimfire rifle, any action type, any sights. However, loads more powerful than 22LR are not allowed on the indoor range. Loaner rifles in youth and adult sizes are available.

Ammunition: Included in cost for youth, BYO for adults. High velocity loads (1300+ fps) are not appropriate for the indoor range.  No centerfire.

Please contact instructors before first class session, to discuss shooter level and appropriate equipment.
