Rifle Marksmanship Training Program
New for 2019 is a four-part series of courses for Rifle Marksmanship Training. These training sessions will be held monthly at the Calgary Rifle and Pistol Club from January through until April. The intent of this training is to offer beginner and experienced rifle athletes alike, formal classroom as well as live fire instruction and coaching in a very hands-on structured environment. The focus will be on smallbore (.22 cal.) rifle shooting for prone, standing and kneeling positions. Whether you are just starting out and would like to learn the basics, or you have some experience and wish to improve your performance, then this training is for you.
