Great way to practice and develop skills while earning patches.
We already have our ladies going through the course and would like to see couples, men, teens, etc. get involved in the skill building.
What the NRA Marksmanship program is:
It is Qualification shooting that is informal, year-round recreational shooting activity that provides incentive awards for developing and improving marksmanship skills. It's a drill. The standards have been set and you meet the challenge!
Its progression is self-paced and scores are challenging but attainable.
Shooters acquire the large discipline patch at the onset of the program and as each rating is earned, they are entitled to all of the corresponding awards for the rating. Each rating level has a skill rocker, medal, and certificate award that recognizes and highlights the achievement.
The courses of fire in the qualification program are designed to take shooters from beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman, Marksman) through intermediate levels (Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, Expert) up to a nationally recognized skill level -- Distinguished Expert .
By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating, he or she has attained a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.
Qualification shooting is a lot of fun while practicing your gun handling skills.
