Definition of an Intermediate shooter

An intermediate shooter is someone that shoots approximately 1000 rds a month and has a good grasp of the basic marksmanship fundamentals and skills and functions of the firearms in low-stress situations. Has done some formal training and seeks a higher level of the tactical applications with their firearms. An intermediate shooter can easily participate in a shooting competition and place in the middle of the pack or lower but has some bad habits or lack of efficiency of use with their firearms. An intermediate shooter can easily shoot and move but not at the same time without some inaccuracy, can safely engage targets in a combat scenario with little stress applied. Can easily correct malfunctions and do more compound tasks such as bolt/slide lock reloads on the move.
