This nation was built on a citizenry that owned a rifle and had the ability to use it in the protection of their family, home, and community. This course is based on that premise. Expanding and extending beyond our Intermediate Distance Rifle/Carbine course. Scout Marksman will push the limits of your rifle and you out to 400 yards and instruct you in our thoughts on the Scout Marksman role. This course can be shot with your 5.56 carbine but is intended for an introduction to large caliber Battle Rifles. Designed around the premise of the Designated Marksman concept it is to fill the gaps between carbine distances and the Sniper. In addition to refining the skills learned in previous courses, you will be introduced to environmental effects on trajectory and how to account for them, improvised rifle rests and maximizing stability for increased hit success, reading and understanding the firing field, all the while gaining confidence in your ability to engage and hit a threat at all distances from close to far. At the conclusion of this course, you will be a more knowledgeable, capable Armed Citizen, and have a firm understanding how the Scout Marksman fits into your Protective System.
