Introduction to Precision Rifle


Course Outline

This course is designed to educate shooters of all levels on 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 occasion, 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.
