    Revere’s Riders - Rifle 125 - 2-Day Basic Rifle - 2-3 Dec 2017 – Nashville, IN

    The last Indiana Revere's Riders event for 2017 is coming up December 2-3: Rifle 125 (Basic Rifle) – Two Day (Nashville, IN) – Revere’s Riders

    This will be our usual Rifle 125 (Basic Rifle) course with a few "incentives" to get folks on the line:


    • this is a great opportunity to test your marksmanship skills in cold weather (can you shoot a score in these conditions?)
    • if you need a break from the cold, we will have a bonfire going both days
    • we will be supplying the fixin's for S'mores (probably on Saturday); eat some gooey goodness while listening to Revolutionary War history
    • we will be giving away TWO RIFLE SCOPES to event participants (see the event listing linked above for details)


    HHRP is a great range located in the hills near Nashville, IN. Last year we were entertained by several A-10 Warthogs on a training flight; they made several passes over the range. Obviously, we can't guarantee a repeat of that this year, but if you don't come out you won't know what you missed until you read the AAR.

    Hmm, crickets. You guys did see that we're giving away around $600 in rifle scopes (Bushnell 2-7×32 worth around $90 and Vortex PST 1-4x24 worth around $500), right?

    So it's this more of a rimfire event or are ARs welcome?

    Either are acceptable. For my first RR course I was just starting out and trying to learn the fundamentals, so I figured rimfire was the way to go.

    Now that I have some of the foundation down, I'm more interested in learning my specific rifle and will bring an AR to the next event I shoot.
    If I had a gun for every ace I have drawn, I could arm a town the size of Abilene.

    I just signed up with my son, he's 9. He'll have a cricket and I'll bring my AR. We're staying the lodge in brown county so a waterpark for my wife and other son to enjoy while we shoot.

    Very much looking forward to it. This will be my first true instruction in marksmanship. We went to boston this summer and my son loved the history and paul revere. This should be awesome.

    If my iron sights aren't perfectly zeroed is that something we can work on?
    Amazing Grace, how sweet was her sound.

    Love them as if you'll lose them.

    Looking forward to meeting you and your son. Learning how to adjust your sights is definitely something that you will learn at this event.

    Still plenty of room at this event. You will get some fantastic rifle marksmanship instruction, hear the history of April 19th, 1775 in a way you may not have heard it before plus a bonfire to keep you warm, S'mores and the camaraderie of some great people.

    Oh, and the chance to win one of two rifle scopes (right now, you have a 1 in 4 chance of winning!).

    I registered last night, an early gift from the in-laws. They also ordered a midway shooting mat for me. It's good to marry into a gun family.
