Small Arms Firing School – Pistol at Camp Perry

Marksmanship is the only sport mandated by federal law.

Title 36 U. S. Code, 0701-40733

Small Arms Firing School is a portion of that mandate and military marksmanship programs are required to send shooter-instructors to help. Each shooter-instructor mentored eight students and helped hundreds of new shooters today.

    This is a good factoid

    Thank you

  2. Thanks, sir!

    Some more good facts:

    The Department of Defense first conducted the Small Arms Firing Schools (SAFS) as part of the National Matches at Camp Perry in 1918. Federal law continues to require the annual conduct of Small Arms Firing Schools, which now instructs over one thousand pistol and rifle shooters every year in firearms safety and fundamental marksmanship skills.
