This class is designed so that it is not intimidating to the beginner. You will learn all aspects of LR and ELR shooting techniques. You will leave this class with a good basic understating of weapon handling, positioning, ballistics and more so that you are able to acquire and engage targets from 400-1300 yards consistently. You may shoot our custom built rifles if you choose. There is a half day of classroom and 1 1/12 days behind the gun. You will spend this time shooting across the sheer cliffs and canyons of the San Juan Mountains which is definitely a plus!
After class kick back and enjoy a home cooked meal and a local brew at Smokey's Tavern. After dinner it is time to sit by the campfire or retire to your room for a massage or a soak in the hot tub. You will leave us relaxed and recharged.
