How We Do It
Target rifle shooting is an activity that many cadets enjoy. Safety is paramount with all ATC activities and shooting is no exception. All cadets are fully trained on a weapon before being allowed to fire for the first time. Staff are also fully trained to ensure that the range is run safely and efficiently. As cadets develop their weapon skills, they can attempt to gain a marksmanship award. Target rifle shooting is often shot at distances over 100m using the L81 rifle again in the prone position. The shoot is always coached and is very much a team effort between coach and firer. Can you hit a V bull (centre of target) at 600m? Why not find out?
