XTC Rifle Clinic Info
Saturday May 28th - be at the target pits at 8:00AM. The clinic is open to all levels of shooters and will be instructed by the All National Guard Marksmanship Team. Junior shooters will receive free ammo for the clinic from the All Guard Team - other clinic participants will need to bring ~70-80 rounds for the afternoon firing. The day will start with a classroom session at one of the covered ranges followed by a brief intermission for lunch (bring your own). After the lunch break, the All Guard Team will conduct live fire training in an XTC Team match format (50 shots). The clinic participants will receive one-on-one instruction during the team match. The firing will be at 200yds (off hand slow fire and sitting rapid fire), 300yds (prone rapid fire) and 600yds (prone slow fire). Clinic size is limited to 30 shooters. There will also be a team match fired in conjunction with the clinic match in the afternoon (you do not need to be a participant in the clinic to be on a team and pick up teams are authorized). The total amount of shooters for the afternoon team match and clinic is limited to 45 shooters. We have a number of Montana State Rifle and Pistol Association AR15 rifles available for use. Contact us beforehand to confirm their availability.

Juniors (21 yrs or younger in 2011) $20.
2 or more Juniors from the same family: $15.

I would strongly recommend attending this. I travelled up to shoot at the Deep Creek range with Jamey last year and it was a really stellar time, plus you can learn a lot!
