The beautiful Pacific coast is our next destination, as we hold our next Intermediate Rifle clinic near Brookings, OR on October 6-7.

Grab your gear (along with your rain slicker) and come join us in learning lots of practical things you think you already know.

What You’ll Need:
• Rifle/carbine
• 200 rounds ammo per day; > 80% of the course can be fired successfully with .22LR
• At least two mags (Note: we are Garand-friendly)
• Rifle sling and ammo carry (mag pouch, bandoleer, etc.)
• Optics/Irons – whatever you would use in an emergency; bring back-up irons if possible
• Food/water/sungear/raingear to get you through a day’s shooting; don’t forget the aspirin!
• Pen/pencil/notepad
• Kneepads/elbowpads/groundpads if you use them; leather gloves are strongly suggested
• Eye and ear protection
• Binoculars (optional)
• Pistoleros: bring your holstered piece, ammo, and an extra mag

What You’ll Learn:
• Practical zeroing for your rifle
• Rapid reaction shots at various ranges (from 3 to 200 yards)
• The importance of follow-up shots
• Immediate action drills
• Reloading techniques
• Moving safely with your rifle
• The necessity of weak-side training
• Your pistol as last resort

Where: We'll convoy via vehicle from the rendezvous point below
When: October 6&7, 2007 -- 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
How much: $75/day; $150/weekend; bring a buddy and receive 50% off the 2nd admission; active military are free with current ID. Young people under 21 are free with a paid admission; participation by minors may be limited as to the extent of training, but they will benefit from the instruction.
