    I am looking to get some qualification course ideas for precision rifles to present to our chief. If any of you have access to your department's course, I would appreciate it. You can PM me and I will provide you with my dept email.

    I am also looking for some basic patrol rifle drills to work on with some of the new deputies. Looking for basic handling and beginner drills.

    Ours in pretty lame. This is our SWAT and Patrol rifle qual, must qual once per year. Patrol is not allowed rifles, but we shoot the same course if you buy your own pistol caliber carbine.

    5rds from 100yds prone
    5rds from 75yds kneeling
    10rds from 50yds standing
    10rds from 50yds kneeling
    10rds from 25yds standing
    10rds from 15yds standing

    Target is a Q. Each round in worth 2pts. Must score a 80 to pass.

    The best training that includes basic handling, marksmanship, and policy/liabiltity training as a 2 day basic patrol rifle course. My state academy puts them on several times a year for an affordable price.

  3. Contact the CJTC here, Sgt. Bob Cecil. He runs the scoped rifle level 1 course and patrol rifle stuff. He'd be happy to help you out.
  4. Here’s our quals. We work off safe (safeties are on at the start of each stage). After each stage we must move (unless behind cover) and scan.

    7-50 Meter Qualification

    7 meters

    2 rounds 2 seconds

    2 rounds 2 seconds (1 handed)

    10 meters

    2 rounds 2 seconds

    (unloaded chamber failure drill) dry fire then transition to secondary 2 rounds in 6 seconds (one handed).

    2 rounds to the body, 1 round to the head 3 seconds

    2 rounds, tac reload, 2 rounds in 12 seconds used magazine can be kept in your hand or placed in a pouch, cannot be dropped/placed on the ground.

    2 rounds target 1, 2 rounds target 2 in 3 seconds

    15 meters

    1 round to the head 3 seconds

    3 rounds standing, 3 rounds kneeling 15 seconds

    25 meters

    4 rounds standing, 4 rounds kneeling 25 seconds strong side barricade

    4 rounds standing, 4 rounds kneeling 25 seconds support side barricade

    50 meters

    4 rounds standing, 4 rounds kneeling in 40 seconds

    Passing score 90% (hits must be within the 8 ring on a B-27 target to score)

    100 Meter Qualification

    5 rounds standing, 5 rounds kneeling, 5 rounds prone in 90 seconds.

    Passing score 80%. For hits to count they must be on the silhouette.

    We are looking at changing our qual and using a more realistic photo target. The 100 meter qual will likely be scrapped. The tac reload under time will be removed and replaced with a reload at 50 meters under time.

    Our carbine course is 6 days. Subsequent years we have to do the annual qual and minimum 2 training days.

    Here is our precision rifle qual:

    1. Cold bore shot (100 yards)--60 seconds, 1 shot on a face target. Deploy rifle from case. Shot prone from bipod. Run to the target and back.

    2. Hostage phase (100 yards)--2 hostage targets. Shot prone from bipod. 2 shots on each target in 60 seconds (4 rounds total). Move rifle to the 75 yard line and load 3 rounds. Run to the target and back.

    3. Positional phase--8 inch circle target. 1 shot from prone unsupported, 1 shot from sitting, and 1 shot standing. 60 seconds.

    Our rifle course is insanely simple.

    10 yard line:
    2 in the chest from ready position in 2 seconds. x3
    1 to the head from ready position in 2 seconds. x2

    25 yard line
    2 to the chest standing in four seconds x3

    50 yard line
    2 to the chest kneeling in 6 seconds x3

    75 yard line
    6 to the chest sitting in 20 seconds

    100 yard line
    10 to the chest prone 30 seconds

    We do the same course for day and night. Points for hitting anywhere in the seven ring on a B2. Outside of that but in the black is a reduction. Can't remember the exact way it works out but the highlights is you can pull one round completely off or two rounds in the black and still pass. 90% is passing. 100% is typical for pretty much everyone.

    Sounds like the rifle courses I have done with the Steyr Aug and the M4. Except we we did kneeling and prone at the 100.
