Our introductory Precision Rifle course is a 2 day 16-hour course that will introduce students to precision rifle shooting. Held at Del Norte Gun Club, students will spend time in the classroom learning topics such as proper firearms handling and safety, maintenance, optic/platform considerations, MOA/MRAD characteristics, ballistics, wind effects, and more. Students will be able to apply these fundamentals on both the Known Distance and Unknown Distance ranges over the two days. Students will leave the class with a working level knowledge of how to effectively employ a precision rifle at known distances to 600 meters.
