DECEMBER 21, 2013

TRAINING FEES: $80 per student for pre-registration (no later than 8 December), $100 otherwise
“Buy one get one half off:” Sign up for training and bring a friend or family member for half off!
$10 discount for Indigo Club Range members, active duty military members, professional educators, and AR15.com Forum Members

50% of all training fees are due to reserve your seat. The remaining 50% are payable upon the day of the class. Deposits may be paid with personal check, cash, money order, or cashier’s check and enclosed with registration. No credit/debit cards!

Walk-ins who are not pre-registered with a deposit paid may be turned away the day of the class if we are full. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged to reserve your seat and to ensure that there are no equipment problems.

If there is insufficient interest 7 days prior to the class, the course may be cancelled. Any deposits paid will be fully refunded. I am willing to teach a small group, but given the holiday week am not able to support a "one on one" ratio for this particular class.


I am teaching an NRA Basic Rifle course this December in the midlands. Indigo Club is located between Columbia and Sumter just off rte 378.

Please contact me if you have any questions about the course, or post right here in the thread. You can sign up by PMing me or via the NRA website.

I just got a question via PM and figured I'd put the answer out here for all.

"What is the ammunition requirement?"
We are estimating 100 rounds as a suggested amount of ammunition.

The course curriculum goes through the bench, standing, sitting, and prone positions. We will teach several drills in each position, with each drill requiring 3-5 rounds. Over a long day that can add up. If there is time and interest we may teach variants on the positions such as competition offhand, variants on sitting (i.e. kneeling), and so on. That can add up over a long day!

I do suggest bringing 200 rounds of ammunition so that you do not have to ration for drills at all. If ammunition is a problem, let me know privately and I will help find a solution .

The NRA Basic Rifle curriculum is .22 rimfire friendly. 22s are actually suggested, and this should ease ammunition requirements significantly.

Bump for a new course with new course dates! The Sep class went great and the range is letting us host another in December. The class will emphasize the field shooting positions (unsupported prone, sitting/kneeling, and standing).

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Due to insufficient paid preregistered students, this course has been cancelled.

If I receive several pre-regs in the mail on Monday I'll reconsider.

Thank you for your interest but due to the holiday season I need firm commitments to schedule the range and justify the time away from family.

Please have a happy holiday season! I hope to see you at an Appleseed marksmanship & heritage clinic or an NRA class in 2014!
