Rifle

Features

Air Rifle training was introduced to the Canadian Cadet Movement in the 1990s. The addition of air rifles reflects the need for an inexpensive, readily available marksmanship program. 

The Canadian Cadet Movement's Air Rifle is the Daisy / Avanti 853C .177 Calibre Target Air Rifle. This Daisy model was created specifically for the Canadian Cadet Movement. Because of the low muzzle velocity, the Daisy 853C is not classified as a firearm under the current Federal Gun Legislation. During competition and practice, cadets fire at a recreational full round target that has 10 firing and two sighting diagrams. 

Air rifle ranges can be setup virtually anywhere. We routinely setup on our parade square, and in the field during Field Training Exercises. The range is configured in 1.5 metre x 10 metre lanes. Cadets typically fire from the prone (laying down) position.
