Course Description:

This course is for the precision shooter who wants to take their training and hone it in a training environment which more directly simulates the real world.  While being able to take a prone shot with a steady platform may be great for the range, in hunting or competition applications that certainly won’t always be available.

This course will utilize various conventional and unconventional barricades to show the student how to take an accurate shot utilizes the best support practices available.  In addition, students will  be challenged with an aerial platform to show the distinct difference when shooting from an elevated position.
