There's also a Basic Rifle event at Nashville in Dec.
You're correct in noting the Basic Rifle schedule is thinner than last year. As volunteers, there's only so much manpower to go around. Much of that has been spent doing other types of courses like Pistol and Carbine. Many of the ranges we do events at have limited scheduling opportunities as well and we've been using up those dates with our other offerings.
I'd love to have Basic Rifle every month but it hasn't been working for us. Our Pistol and Carbine events are selling out. Our Basic Rifle courses have a handful of attendees. In addition to trying to find the balance between manpower and budget we have to listen to the market. The market says Basic Rifle is only necessary a few times a year.
If you can't make it to any of the scheduled events, we can always bring an event to you. We need 25m and a good safe backstop. Have a group of six to twelve? We'll put something on the schedule. If you'd like your son to go through the course but don't have a range or group of folks that also want to attend, send an email and we'll do our best to get a time/place that works for you.
...and as always, more volunteers equal more events!
