Event Description

Introduction to the AR-15/M-16, first in a series of rifle classes.  This 4 hour class will focus on rifle nomenclature, how to disassemble and reassemble the rifle, how to clean it, inspect a pool gun for proper assembly and function prior to your start of shift, common function problems, lubrication, parts failures, and the why/how they work.  Functional knowledge of your weapon system is vital to keep it up and running, and will allow the shooter to make better use of future training sessions. 


This block of instruction is being offered separately from the other rifle classes, 102, 103, etc, to allow for more range/trigger training time for the shooters in those classes, and will minimize time spent on rifle malfunctions due to improper lubrication and assembly.  The goal is for shooters to be comfortable with why their rifle works and be able to focus their future training energy and time on the new skills at hand.    


Requirements for this class are an AR-15/M-16 rifle, clear safety glasses(no tint), notepad and pen.  Class will be taught inside a heated classroom, there will be no live fire.


This class will last approximately 4 hours, depending on the needs of the attendees.  Maximum class size is 18, price is $10.  Bring payment with you to the class.

That would be preferable, but I guess you could just follow along with your neighbor.

Do you need your own rifle to attend?

Class will be 10am to around 2pm.  Let me know ASAP if that is a problem.

I offered a two day rifle class last fall and only a couple people signed up for it. After to talking to other officers from various departments, they were having extreme difficulty getting time off and there seemed to be an interest in 4 hour classes so people might not need to take a day off, or would still have time in the day to get family commitments taken care of, since time off was getting scarce. This class will include rifle anatomy and some dry fire exercises to get new shooters ready for Rifle 102 in February.

You need to add some trigger time onto this. Also, any chance of adding Rifle 102 for later in the day? I think this would add to the turnout
