Arguably no program has been more successful at UK over the last two decades than the rifle team. Since head coach Harry Mullins took the reins of the program in the mid-1980s, the UK rifle team has been downright dominant.

Under the tutelage of Mullins, UK has posted nine consecutive top-10 finishes at the NCAA Championships, including 15 of the last 16 years. Last season, the Cats nearly pulled off their first national championship, finishing the year as national runner-ups. The Cats have captured five Great American Rifle Conference championships and three regular season conference titles during Mullins' tenure.

That's simply dominance. But, admittedly, not everyone knows what goes behind posting top-10 rifle finishes. What better man to tell you himself than one of the nation's best rifle coaches? Over the next four Thursdays, Mullins will take you behind the scenes to show you the basics of rifle, the difference between smallbore and air rifle, how rifle is scored and much, much more.

Without further ado, here's part four of Rifle 101:
