The Ten Lesson Shooting Education Curriculum with instructor’s guide, developed by Daisy
Outdoor Products, is designed to provide the information and resources needed to effectively
instruct young people in the proper methods of gun handling and marksmanship so that they
may safely and successfully explore the world of the shooting sports. It is intended for use by
any youth-oriented organization interested in conducting basic shooting education programs.
This guide is designed to be usable by someone with no previous experience as a marksmanship
instructor or competitive shooter. With the help of this guide, careful and thorough preparation
can overcome lack of experience.
This guide contains ten complete lesson outlines covering general gun knowledge, proper gun
handling and procedures for conducting airgun competitions. In addition to this guide, you
should also have available training aids, charts, videos, posters and any other material you will
need to teach gun safety and marksmanship.
You will want to review each lesson at least two days in advance of the class. Each lesson lists
materials and equipment that are mandatory. Additionally, you might want to take with you
some standard supplies such as tape, stapler or staple gun, push pins, firrst aid kit and other
things which are common to classrooms. Secure all necessary equipment and be certain you
have adequate supplies of all necessary written handouts.
