What Students Are Saying...

long range "accuracy" class

Rated 5 out of 5

Just an awesome course overall! Very approachable for a beginner like me. Class material made interesting not tedious. Plenty of hands on practice. I didn’t have the gear and ended up renting a rifle. Only high end builds here folks. You can tell Jim has a real passion for the sport. With his experience and that of his team, there’s no question they can’t answer. Entire class hit at 1000 yards by the end! That’s effective teaching! Heck of a skill to gain at this price!!

An excellent class covering the entire spectrum of distance shooting. Jim does a great job of covering a lot of information but delivering it in a way that makes sense. He has the ability to explain complex things in terms that are understandable and that translate into results. The range portion of the course is where everything comes together. Jim, his wife and his entire team are top tier and more importantly fantastic people. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to master long-range shooting in all conditions.

Had a great time! Met lots of super good folks and saw old friends. The shoot was challenging enough to really make you think and pay attention to your surroundings/environmentals while also getting enough hits to keep your confidence up. Definitely will plan on going next year!

An excellent introductory course that covered everything from the proper set up needed for a precision rifle, to the science involved in long range target engagements and hands on time at the range to put the lessons into practice. The class room portion was clear and at a level that all could understand. Instructor to student ratio allowed plenty of time for thorough questions and answers. Overall, the lessons learned during this class will be very beneficial for upcoming hunts and work related applications.
