400 (Birkenhead) Squadron

Air Training Corps

Marksmanship

The squadron prides itself on the training it gives to the cadets ensuring that you can use the weapon expertly and safely.

 It's not easy aiming towards a target 10cm in diameter from 25m away, but after our tuition, you'll become a pro. 

Once you've completed the course, you'll move onto other weapons across greater distances, testing your ability's even further.                        

 

 

Air Rifle Shooting

We are very lucky to have a number member of staff who are qualified on the Air Rifle on the Sqn. They can teach cadets how to shoot safely and make it fun. This type of shooting is fun and easy to instruct with cadets enjoying every moment.

 

 

Clay Pigeon Shooting

We also have a member of staff who is a qualified clay pigeon coach on the Sqn and several qualified safety officers which is great! They can teach cadets how to shoot safely and make it fun. This type of shooting is very different to the normal target shooting we usually undertake, but is no easier especially as the clay targets are constantly moving!
