2023 hunters challenge

Rated 5 out of 5

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.

I had the pleasure of being able to attend this training through my agency. After having gone through the course, I would recommend Jim to any shooter looking to improve their fundamentals and efficiency with a handgun. Jim was very professional and provided excellent critiques and techniques.

Incredible Class!

I attended a two day course with Jim focused on pistol training. I can’t say enough about Jim and the experience as a whole. My mechanics and shooting improved drastically in a short amount of time. Jim is a very capable teacher, and his passion for shooting and sharing knowledge is very evident. Not to mention you probably won’t go any longer than a few minutes before the next laugh. This was not my first class with Jim, and it won’t be my last.
