On Saturday 5th March, Cadet Corporal Ethan Bates and Cadet Jake Sanderson went to 504 (West Nottingham) Squadron ATC to practice their target shooting with the No.8 Rifle.
Before they got to shoot, they had to learn multiple things such as how to care for the rifle and what to do and what not to do with the rifle.
Once they passed their Weapons Handling Tests, they went to the range and were each given 30 rounds to get the best possible groupings they could.
Cpl Bates said “I enjoyed going shooting again and believe I did quite well earning a Squadron Marksman”
