Postby JU-87 » Wed Apr 12, 2017 4:45 pm

Folks-This is a FANTASTIC training oppornitunity!

Two courses: Rifle school is 2 days, Pistol school is 1 day.
The US Army and/or the CMP supply the firearms and ammo. The US Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU) provides the instruction. Some of them are Olympians!
$45 for adults, $30 for youth.
In July, 2017, Camp Perry (Port Clinton), Ohio.

Do it. :)

Small Arms Firing Schools

The Department of Defense first conducted the Small Arms Firing Schools (SAFS) as part of the National Matches at Camp Perry in 1918. Federal law continues to require the annual conduct of Small Arms Firing Schools, ( :shock: 8) ) which now instruct over one thousand pistol and rifle shooters a year in firearms safety and fundamental marksmanship skills. The Pistol and Rifle Schools are conducted by the U. S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) and sponsored by the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). The Schools are open to all U. S. citizens who are over the minimum age. Firearms are provided, students must bring eye and ear protection. In the Schools, USAMU instructors, assisted by Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine and Navy Active, National Guard and Reserve shooting team members teach basic marksmanship techniques geared to meet the needs of new and less experienced shooters as well as shooters who want to learn new ways to improve their scores...
