"Advance Theory CD" - For many years shooters have made a sight adjustment and have come out the other side. Someone would tell them, "you must put one click on the rifle and one click in your head". The "Windage and Elevation" rule states, "One click will move the strike of the bullet one inch per 100 years. Jim's Advance Theory says, You must do two things with it: (1) Memorize it, because people will talk about it, and (2) Forget it, it does not work! Jim gives you an alternate theory in three Power Point Presentations on the CD - That Does Work! Personal Support after viewing the CD! If you have any questions or do not understand something, just call Jim at 334-347-0020 and he will be more than happy to help you.

"Line & Pit Procedures CD" - When we 1st participate in a new sport we are a little intimidated.  We don’t know what to expect.  We do not want to make a mistake, look foolish, maybe having someone yell at us or mess someone else up.

Well, come along with me.  We are going to a High Power Rifle Match.  We are going from start to finish.  From the time we arrive at the Range, to checking in at the stat office, getting assigned our relay, dropping our gear off at the ready line and reporting to the Pits. We are going to be there all day.  We will see the different relays fire the Match and in turn see the different problems that can come up and how they are handled.  We are going to find out where to go and when.  We will find out what we have to do when we get there and what supplies we will need.  We will find out the proper way to run a target, both in slow fire and rapid fire.  How to handle the different situations. We will learn the Range Commands, both Line and The Pits.  We will learn the flow of the Match. 
I am going to show you some of the small tricks I have learned in over 45 years of shooting.


"Score Keeping CD" - You learn by doing! After the instruction phase you actually score a shooter in both slow fire and rapid fire.  The different problems that can occur will be presented as you score the shooter.  You will get years of experience in a single setting.  In fact, you will know more than most people that have been shooting 5 to 10 years.

IMPORTANT CHANGES

Under current NRA & CMP rule changes, keep in mind the following procedures:

Under current NRA rules for Sitting & Prone rapid fire the shooter MUST stay down in position, the ammo must remain on the stool or mat and the rifle must remain out of the shoulder until the targets appear. When the targets appear, the shooter picks up the ammo, loads and places the rifle in the shoulder and begins to fire. For Service Rifles the shooter has the option of loading two rounds in the 1st magazine and eight rounds in the 2nd magazine OR five rounds in the 1st magazine and five rounds in the 2nd magazine.

Under current CMP rules for Sitting & Prone rapid fire the shooter MUST stand. When the command “Load” is given, the shooter will close the bolt on an EMPTY Chamber, and then insert the magazine into the rifle. For the M-1 Garand shooters, two rounds are placed into the well and pushed down until the bolt overrides the two rounds and the bolt is closed onto an EMPTY Camber. When the targets appear the shooter drops down into position and operates the bolt, places the rifle in the shoulder and begins to fire. For Service Rifles the shooter no longer has the option of loading five rounds in the 1st magazine and five rounds in the 2nd magazine. The shooter MUST load two rounds in the 1st magazine and eight rounds in the 2nd magazine.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 334-347-0020. I am a NRA Referee and I do keep current on the rules.
