Firearms Awareness Training (Rifle) – Thimbleby Shooting Ground, North Yorkshire
Location: Thimbleby Shooting Ground
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.
