Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program
Here is where the FUN begins...
For the Whole Family
From a young shooter's first BB gun to sophisticated air rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders,
pistols, and rifles, the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program offers family
fun and enjoyment that can last a lifetime.
Qualification shooting is an informal, year-round recreational shooting activity that
provides incentive awards for developing and improving marksmanship skills.
It's a drill. We set the standards; you meet the challenge! Progression is self-paced
and scores are challenging but attainable. Performance is measured against established
par scores and any shooter who meets or exceeds those scores is entitled to the corresponding
recognition awards for that rating. It's an honor system!
The courses of fire in the qualification program are designed to take shooters from
beginning skill levels (Pro-Marksman, Marksman) through intermediate levels
(Marksman 1st Class, Sharpshooter, Expert) up to a nationally recognized skill
level -- Distinguished Expert -- the pinnacle of the program.
By the time a shooter completes the Distinguished Expert rating, he or she has attained
a proficiency level paralleling that of a competitively classified Sharpshooter.
Qualification shooting can be conducted anywhere -- on public ranges, at your favorite club range,
even on your own home range. BB and pellet gun shooters will find air gun qualification
courses especially suited for informal home air gun ranges and family learning environments.
Parents can shoot side by side with their children or start a neighborhood air gun shooting
sports program for their children and their friends.
At East Texas Shooters we have the facilities
to organize shooting competitions and training for your kids and you to become expert marksmen.
