ARPC presents Beginner Level Practical Rifle and Pistol Event

Members,

Time for another beginner course that people have been asking about. It is essentially what we used to call the Carbine clinic. In order to get members safely introduced to practical and action shooting, we devised a course to address the shortfall of cost effective and available training to members. Practical shooting mindset is nothing new. If bench rest shooting isn’t your thing and you want to know how to move efficiently and be accurate with a firearm in a multitarget environment, you might consider this course.

Who: Any AGC badge holder that wants to learn practical rifle and pistol techniques. Beginner level folks only. There will be an advanced course in October.
When: Saturday 28 September 2019, 0800-1600hrs
Where: AGC action Bay 6
Cost: $100 per shooter payable the morning of the event

Email the ARPC XO email link on the club website if you are interested. There are only 10 seats. First come, first served. Please be considerate and only register if you can make it. I will have a wait list, as always, for last minute unavoidable cancellations.

I will email instructions explaining details directly to participants when they register.

ARPC XO

Reminder: Arlington has a 100 yard Steel Plate Rifle Shoot on the Barnes Multi-purpose Range Saturday, August, 17, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
