Practical Rifle/Pistol: What is it? Isn’t all rifle/pistol shooting practical? The short answer is no. Standing static and shooting is very quickly being replaced by practical action shooting. Both competition and self-defense require movement with a firearm. Addressing all of the things going on in a dynamic scenario while under stress while being safe is what practical shooting is all about. This ARPC event serves a foundational beginning to one’s action shooting journey.

Target Audience: For AGC badge holders that are interested in learning and applying practical rifle/pistol skills. There is an abundant interest by members to get into action shooting at the AGC. This event is not for an individual that just learned how to shoot a rifle/pistol yesterday.

Requirements: Must be an AGC badge holder, possess a serviceable semi-auto pistol in 9mm, 40 or 45 cal, AR-15 in .223 or 5.56, combat sling, holster and three magazines per gun. 300 rds of pistol and rifle ammunition each minimum, full coverage eye protection, ear protection, and a good attitude. Participants should be comfortable with and operate safely the rifle/pistol of their choice.

Participants must be holster certified by the AGC. Arrangements may be made to perform the practical holster certification on the day of the event.

What to expect from the event: The event is 8 hours on the range with no classroom time. The practical skills taught are agnostic to self-defense or competition style shooting. We will cover the following high level areas:

Basic Marksmanship fundamentals and safety refresher

Holster and gear setup

Target selection and transitions/ Barriers/ Shooting positions

Magazine changes and Malfunctions

Economy of motion

Shooter Mindset and planning

Basic moving while shooting
