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. 
 
The Squadron provides these air rifles for use at Range.  Your personal air rifles, duck guns, or Barrett 50 cal. are not eligible for use at these events!
 
The range is configured in 1.5 metre x 10 metre lanes. Cadets typically fire from the prone (laying down) position.
 
Safety is of paramount importance to the Canadian Cadet Marksmanship training program. Supervisory staff are made up of Canadian Forces Personnel (CIC Staff) who have completed an intensive training program. These qualified Range Safety Officers are highly skilled at preventing injury, and loss of property.

 

"Be one with our gun.  Practice often, until it is an extension of yourself."
The marksmanship program has been designed specifically for youth.
 
The focus is on teaching Cadets the proper use and safe handling of firearms.
 
It is mandatory for cadets in levels 1 through 4 to participate in Range in order to fulfill their yearly requirements.
 
Squadron Range nights will be posted on the website calendar and all Cadets are eligible to try out for the Range team. A team is selected from our Squadron's best marksmen. 
 
Throughout the year, Range teams compete throughout Alberta, culminating in the annual National Cadet Marksmanship Championship.
