The aim of this course is to equip the candidate with the knowledge, understanding, skills and awareness required to undertake basic rifle shooting as required for the Deer Stalking Certificate 1 (DSC1) Shooting Assessment. It is an ideal course aimed at the beginner or novice shot to improve shooting ability prior to undertaking the DSC1.
There is no requirement for you to have a Firearms Certificate or your own rifle. Safety issues will be dealt with in a classroom before moving on to the range for the practical aspects which will deal with shooting positions and rifle technique. The course will offer the candidate plenty of time on the range using various centre-fire rifles and to practise the shooting test positions.
There will also be some time for discussion and explanations of other areas of the DSC1 course and assessments
Rifles are available and ammunition will be provided. You may of course bring your own rifle; if you do, please bring your current FAC with you.
(Not available to non-members)
Please select the course you wish to attend and complete the online booking form.
