This is a basic rifle shooting course. Students are introduced to the rifle, its nomenclature and the fundamentals and safety of rifles.

We consider this course a prerequisite for any future rifle courses and a must for all beginner to advanced level shooters.

Rifles must be zeroed before attending the course.

This class is led by our Chief Instructor, Paul White. Paul brings exceptional firearms expertise and tactical experience and will serve as the Chief Instructor and Range Safety Officer. He is a Sig Sauer certified Master Instructor in all three disciplines taught at Texas Gun Club including the Rifle, Handgun, and Shotgun. Sig Sauer focuses on the “S.I.G.” principle, meaning Simple Is Good. So not only has he mastered the essential skills of each firearms platform but he has mastered a proven instruction technique to teach students sound tactics in less time. Additionally, Paul is certified to teach: Live-Fire Entry for First Responders, Tactical First Aid, The Carbine Course, The Glock Firearms Course, Basic and Tactical Shotgun and the AK-47 Rifle Course. He is a certified FBI Firearms Instructor and an Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Instructor. Paul also teaches the Sure Fire Low-Light course and of course, the Texas License to Carry Course.
