    27-28 Sep 2014 Precision Rifle Clinic CFB Petawawa Debrief Here!

    Well I am finally getting some solidification of my Tacticalteacher Clinic Calendar! Update : 04 Sep, some spots have opened up....


    Where

    CFB Petawawa

    When

    27-28 Sep 2014 Sat & Sunday

    Cost

    $80 for both days (go and find any instruction for that price point)

    Where to Stay

    About 10-15min from range control (and right by kelseys) http://www.petawawaqualityinnandsuites.com/
    2 min from base with several fast food/pizza options close by http://www.petawawariverinnandsuites.ca/


    Material Focus

    Everything I'll be teaching you is based on the PR matches fired by the ORA at Mons Range, CFB Borden. And I should know, I'm the MATCH Director! :D

    Here's the bulk of the material from my www.tacticalteacher.ca website:

    Precision (read: Sniper) Rifle Clinics

    DCRA Styles


    The Precision rifle clinic prepares the shooter for competitions patterned after the course of fire shot by the DCRA or Dominion of Canada Rifle association at their Annual Prize meeting for Service Conditions held every year at CRPTC or Connaught Range and Primary Training Center near Shirley's Bay in the Kanata/Nepean area. The course of fire can be downloaded in PDF format at www.dcra.ca

    These matches are shot monthly by the ORA or www.ontariorifleassociation.ca at CFB Borden , ON. The ORA follows the DCRA rulebook and course of fire . The purpose of this clinic is to prepare the competitor to shoot these matches.


    Precision / Sniper Rifle Kit to Bring:

    * A safe precision/sniper rifle in at least .223 Rem caliber and larger. .308 Win is a common platform
    * Hand operated target turrets on your optic already mounted to your rifle. 4.5 x 14 scopes are common. 6.5 x 20 scopes are seen frequently. 8 x 30 scopes are great optics for these matches. Scopes with a parallax adjustable side focus work well. Adjustable objective scopes work too, but more annoying to work with while in the prone position. Just don't show up with the stereotypical 3 x 9 coin operated hunting scopes because you will be wasting your time (and money)

    * Last Sep 2013 Clinic we had some hunting scopes on the line, they were super frustrated with the coin operated turrets. I warned them, but they insisted. Now they are wiser from this experience. Please; go to school on their experiences.


    * Suggested scope choices:
    - Bushnell Elite 6400, 6500, Sightron
    - Leupold Mark 4 LR/T , Nikon, Vortex Razor, Zeiss
    - NightForce, US Optics, Premier Reticles, Schmidt & Bender, Swarovski

    * Rear bunny, sand bag, mono pod style rear rests work, too.
    * Notebook to record your sight settings
    * Anemometer (Kestrel-style) hand held wind gauges
    * Spotting scope and tripod
    * Rucksack, 3 day pack, Assault pack to carry your kit around the range
    * Snacks, granola bars, nuts, fruit, extra fluids
    * 200 rounds of safe, tested, reliable ammunition for your rifle (hopefully chronographed already)
    * Sunscreen, bug dope, ballistic glasses, hearing defenders
    * Extra food and water (someone always forgets)
    * Screwdriver set - compact enough?
    * OH Shzt Kit (if you don't know, I will teach you)
    * Rain gear or appropriate foul weather gear
    * Shooting mat / folding rifle case
    * Laptop or Tablet with USB interface... I'll tell ya why later on
    * Ensure your rifle is zeroed for 100m
    * Ensure your scope can do the "box" test reliably (Contact me, if you don't know what this is)

    Questions?

    * Ask me right here in this thread. Others might be curious with the same concerns.

    Registration?

    * EMT of $80 gets you a spot on the clinic
    * I'm taking a maximum of 28 shooters

    EMT Information:
    Name: Tactical Teacher
    Question: What is your CGN handle?
    Answer: hungry (all low caps so I cannot mess things up)
    Email address: hungry556@rogers.com

    Somewhere in the EMT, remind me of your CGN handle and which clinic it's for (CQB, PR, or M14)



    Cheers and keep helping the noobs out there!

    Hi Barney. A few questions.

    1) Is a Vortex Viper PST (FFP) 6-24 or a Burris MTAC 6.5-20 (SFP) enough scope for this clinic? My MTAC would be on a .223, the Viper on a .308.

    2) The clinic runs over two days. Do we stay on site the two days (camping? hotel?) or do we just show up at the start of each day and take care of our own accommodations off site?

    3) What level of experience is appropriate? I wouldn't say I'm a complete noob, but I've only been shooting (pretty much exclusively for precision with bolt action rifles) for about 5 months now.

    There are a few hotels close by. Black bear camp ground is on base as well but I am not sure when they close down for the season.


    I am planning on attending with my M14 in Archangel stock and elite tactical 3200 Can't wait

    Tagged, hoping to sign up shortly.

    Last year was outstanding, learned more than I could remember, and had lots of fun to boot.
    You know you are a real gunnut when you start practicing trigger control on power tools.

    WWJMBD? What Would John Moses Browning Do?

    Yeah it was good times. September is a long ways away. I think Barney should do a pre clinic clinic in June for a refresher before the actual clinic.

    It's CQB in June, not a PR clinic. But I may look into it.
