San Jose, CA – Metcalf 200yd RANGE

$275 + $20 Range Fee

Course Outline

This course is a built to educate shooters of all levels the fundamentals and concepts of precision shooting at a facility that is limited on distance, class size is limited to ten students. Students will learn that they do not need distance to learn how to operate a precision rifle effectively. Students will learn the proper precision shooting fundamentals and gain deeper understanding of their equipment to engage a target from any distance.  We do not rise to the occassion, but fall to the level of our training- don’t fall short when it counts. This is a low round count class- distance calls for quality not quantity. All students will receive a shooters packet with formulas, range cards, log book templates and general precision rifle knowledge. Students can also use an optic with a Horus reticle for free during class, all scopes will be in mounts for picatinny/ AR type receivers.
