Training Day- Live Firing the Enfield P53

August 2013

Thanks to Cheryl Ball and Bill Chapman, in August we were able to visit the Alden Rod and Gun Club in Alden, NY.  We were able learn more about our rifle, and a few others as well.  Under the guidance of our instructor Bill Chapman, we were taught to properly and safely handle an Enfield rifle.




Here are some links to a few videos that were taken at the range.

An AR in the hands of the 1SG is a scary thing
