Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.
Location: Graythwaite Estate Office
The aim of the course is to provide the knowledge and experience required for basic rifle shooting. It is ideal for beginners or novices to improve their shooting skills.
This is a one-day course which will provide the less experienced rifle shot with a sturdy foundation of knowledge. Basic rifle safety, firearms law and different rifle types and calibres will be dealt with in a classroom before candidates move on to the range for the practical aspects, dealing with shooting positions and rifle technique. The course will offer you time on the range using both .22 rimfire and centrefire rifles.
You do not need to have a Firearms Certificate or your own rifle. Rifles and ammunition will be provided. If you have your own rifle, you may bring it to use it on the course provided you also bring your current FAC and suitable ammunition.
£125 for BASC members
