Marksmanship for Young Shooters: The Air Rifle as an Instructional Tool.
Smith, Julian W., Ed.
The purposes of this manual, which is part of a series on outdoor education, are: (1) to show some ways in which the spring-type air rifle can be used as an instructional tool in the school curriculum (especially in the elementary school) and in recreational and agency programs involving young shooters and (2) to provide information on the mechanics of and procedures for using the spring-type air rifle. It is a curriculum and program guide, not a training manual, which should be supplemented with "Shooting and Hunting" (a preceding manual in the outdoor education series) and other related publications. It is divided into two parts: (1) The Spring-Type Air Rifle as an Instructional Tool and (2) Teaching Marksmanship. Part 1 discusses planning the program, curriculum use, and special projects. Part 2 discusses the history of guns, gun handling, setting up the range, shooting skills, range procedures, and field training. (NQ)
