About this event

The lever-action platform has been getting the job done since 1860, and it is still a viable choice for a patrol/social rifle. This course covers safe handling procedures, basic operation, and loading techniques for the lever-action rifle.

Equipment list:

  • Centerfire rifle/carbine with a side loading gate (Mandatory) with a sling (preferred) or carry bag
  • Pistol with holster and loading devices/carriers
  • 100 rounds rifle/carbine; 50 rounds pistol
  • A means of carrying spare rifle ammo: butt cuff, side saddle, etc (See Below)
  • All safety equipment such as hearing/eye protection, brimmed hat, etc
  • Comfort items: food, drinks, chairs, etc

Good options for ammo carry include the Brown Coat Tactical shell carrier, the Wilderness Tactical Products shell belt, or the butt cuffs from Simply Rugged. If you use one of the cheaper elastic butt cuffs you will need to use something like double sided tape or a screw to fix it in place.

A good option for a sling is the Proctor Sling as it does not require hardware.

Ammo recommendation: jacketed, factory loaded ammunition. Cast lead bullet ammo that functions fine for hunting frequently has feeding issues at the speed and volume of fire required in the class.

Please note: Pistol caliber leverguns are much more finicky regarding the shape of the bullet and the overall length of the round.
