This course is designed for the shooter who has taken the intro course and wants more, or the shooter who already has some of the basics down.  The goal of this course is to make you more proficient, knowledgeable, and ultimately a better shooter when you leave.  This course is also an excellent preparation course for the student interested in continuing training.


This course is offered in a one day, 8 hour block.  The class begins with a classroom lecture and presentation, and demonstrations on the platform.  We review the nomenclature and dive more into the mechanics and parts of the gun so you have a better understanding of how the rifle works, and where to start looking if issues arrise.  


The range session begins with a zero confirmation process.  Being this is not a basic course you should have an established zero and be ready to shoot.  During the range portion students will perform a variety of drills becoming proficient with the fundamentals of marksmanship, loading, operating the rifle safely, and building a skill set to create effective training and practice sessions on their own.  We also start to work on movement with a rifle and shooting on the move.  We will shoot steel at greater distances from our intro course to confirm the fundamentals of marksmanship.


Refreshments, sports drinks, and water, will be included with course.
