This course is designed for members who wish to apply for a Police Target Shooting Licence A (pistols/rifles) and Target Shooting Licence B (tactical shotgun).
In the first session we shall introduce you to the Target Shooting Licence and its legal entitlement and obligations before moving on to cover the basics of firearms, their function and ballistic considerations.
In the second session we shall cover firearm types, handling, safety considerations, range rules and the difference between the various shooting disciplines. Students shall have the opportunity to handle and dry-fire a selection of firearms in preparation for the 3rd session.
The third and final session shall give students the opportunity to handle and shoot firearms under the supervision of the instructor, who shall also assess students’ grasp of safe handling before qualifying them for an AMACS recommendation to apply for the Police licence. Students are required to wear eye and ear protection for this session. Please inform us if you do not already have such protection.
The fee for this first course is 60 euro, which also covers the range visit, use of AMACS firearms and the ammunition consumed. Only MRPSC members who are paid up for 2019 are eligible to apply. The maximum number of students for this course shall be 8 persons. Slots shall be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis to those who book in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and follow up with their payment by Wednesday 23 January latest.
Those who are next in line will be placed first for allocation of slots in the next course, which shall be held towards the end of February.
