Do we shoot when there is snow on the ground? ….. Why Yes, Yes we do!

 

Nothing like a fresh blanket of snow to cool you off while taking the Revere’s Riders – Basic Rifle Class!!

Frank Tait (Rifle Committee Chair and Revere’s Riders Instructor) presents an award for some awesome shooting!

Can you concentrate in the cold …… all of these students did not seem to have a problem with it!!

Equipment

One of the goals of the Revere’s Riders program is to help new shooters get started with rifle shooting. We can provide any equipment that you may not already have. Please let us know of your equipment needs ahead of time so that we can be prepared.

If you have the following items, please bring them:

  • Eye and Ear Protection
  • .22LR Rifle (LPRGC can provide loaner rifles)
  • Ammunition
  • Rifle Sling (LPRGC provides loaner slings)
  • Shooting Mat (LPRGC provides loaner mats)

Please come dressed for the weather. We shoot on an outdoor range and ask shooters to be prepared for hot/cold/rainy weather. LPRGC provided bottled water for participants.  Especially during the hot months, bring snacks to keep fueled.

History

And in addition to great instruction on the fundamentals of Rifle Marksmanship, you get the history of April 19, 1775 and how marksmanship made a difference in the founding of our country!
