Pre-qualification shooting for the NRA Rifle Instructor Course
Pre-qualification shooting for the NRA Rifle Instructor Course will take place at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, 06 April 2013. Don't be late.
The range is located at the north end of 3600 W in West Weber.
From I-15 north or south bound, take the 12th street exit and head west to 3500 west.
Turn north on 3500 and follow to 3600 west. (You will be heading west).
Turn north again on 3600 west and go to the end of the road. You will pass through a couple of gates. Be prepared for muddy conditions, hopefully it will be dried up by then.
Attached a flyer used for Hunter Ed shooters. The idea and circumstances of the shooting exercises are similar to this training event.
It is not meant to be condescending in any way.
The approach to the shooting qualifications is from the viewpoint of everyone being a brand new shooter.
We will pair up and use the coach/pupil method while on the range.
More precise driving directions to the qualification range:
GPS Latitude 41.271623, Longitude -112.070501
