Marksman Course. The Marksman Qualification Program is the National Rifle Association of America's most popular course. This course covers all the different shooting disciplines (handgun, light rifle, high-power rifle, sporting rifle, muzzle loading firearm). The course itself is very informal and is self paced. Well worth a go and can be done easily in the UK. Now includes the UK high power rifle qualification that has been endorsed by the NRA of America. Note NEW target requirements.
