Air rifle shooting was one of the best activities that I have experienced in the Air Cadets. It took about 1 hour to get to the shooting range, where we had 2 hours of training on how to use the weapons, including basic commands, the safety procedures we would need to know to operate them safely and the different parts of the weapons. Once we had done the training, we had to do a test that certified that we could safely operate the rifles.
The WHT lasts for six months, and also allows me to go on to use more advanced weapons within the ATC, such as the L98. We were allowed on the firing range once we had passed the test, and had to pass a series of different shooting disciplines in order to gain a badge to sow on our brassard. I really enjoyed going, and getting a badge was a bonus. I would thoroughly recommend this to other cadets, and would love to do this again and pursue shooting with more advanced weapons throughout my time in the Air Cadets.
