Introductory GR Training Day
Saturday 7th March, Melville Ranges, Bisley
Cost £70 – which includes range fees, targets, scorebook, individual coaching and lunch
The Introduction to Gallery Rifle (GR) Course will provide the fundamental skills for taking part in GR events and competitions, and will include individual coaching, positional shooting techniques, range procedures, match preparation, mental and physical attitudes, aiming, breathing, trigger control and much more.
The day is open for all shooters who have perhaps completed a NRA approved probationary course or have become a full member of a club and have been shooting for a while and wish to embark on the next stage of competitive GR&P shooting.
Your own Gallery rifles, pistols and equipment is ideally required although some equipment will be available for hire or loan if required. LBRs and LBPs are not available to loan or hire so those wanting to train in these disciplines must have their own equipment.
Further details and a booking form available on the NRA website.
