Precision Rifle Skill Builder
July 14, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm$175
PRECISION RIFLE SKILL BUILDER – Taught by Instructor William Thompson
The Precision Rifle Skill Builder class, focuses of the shooting fundamentals covered the Precision Rifle I two day class. As a prerequisite, participants must have attended the Precision Rifle I class or have a similarly qualifying set of credentials (contact instructor to see if qualifications are sufficient).
COURSE FEE: $175.00
A lot of information is covered during the two day Precision Rifle I class. To reinforce much of what was covered, the Precision Rifle Skill Builder class will cover a significant portion of the shooting drills covered in the two day class. The Skill Builder class is heavy on trigger time. This will give students an opportunity to hone their precision rifle skills while receiving instant feedback from the instructor.
Since the information covered in the two day class is a prerequisite, shooters will be expected to show up to class with their rifles zeroed and with enough ballistic data to engage targets out to 850 yards. The class will begin with drills at the 100 yard line and will bounce back to the 600 yard line for the remainder of the day. Throughout the duration of the class, students will reinforce correct body position, bolt manipulation, calling their shots, multi-target engagements, wind calls, and a number of other fundamentals. Both paper and steel targets will be used for this course. The pace for this curriculum will be fast.
Logistically, vehicles must be staged separately from the ranges, so shooters will have limited chances to return to their vehicles. Everything for the range portion of the class should be able to be carried by hand or in a backpack.
