Men’s Marksmanship Night
It’s Men’s Marksmanship night at the range!
Join us at the range on Thursday for a special MEN ONLY event.
Carolina Sporting Arms will be hosting a Men’s Marksmanship development night on Thursday Nights. The Men’s marksmanship development class is a self-paced course designed to reinforce basic handgun safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, targeting either brand new shooters or shooters looking to build and improve their current skillset. The program follows a nationally recognized program of repetitive drills of gradually increasing difficulty called the Winchester Marksmanship Program.
Skill Level: Intermediate | Instructor: Marshall Hampton | Time: 2 hrs. | Location: Charlotte, NC | Cost: $50.00/person
“I searched for training courses and wasn’t specifically looking for a men’s only course, but am glad I found one. The instructor’s knowledge was excellent, and energy and enthusiasm kept the night engaging and fun. Great job!“
– Paul B.
If you have not fired a pistol before, we recommend you first take one of our introductory classes: Give It A Shot or the First Steps and First Shots classes.

WHAT IS THE CLASS ABOUT/WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
By the end of the program the shooter will have mastered the basic fundamentals of marksmanship and be able to hit their intended target with confidence and will also have qualified for the NRA Distinguished Expert tab in the pistol discipline. This is a nationally recognized level of achievement that is something to be proud of!

- • Distinguished Expert
- • On successful completion of each level certificates of achievement are issued to the shooter acknowledging their performance.

The class will begin with the issuing of awards from the previous session and a review of all courses of fire being shot by the participants each evening with an open question and answer session. The class will then adjourn to the range for the completion of drills at the pace of the individual shooter with interactive coaching while on the firing line.
