Long Range Precision Rifle

Whether you are new to the sport, an avid hunter or looking to expand your skills our Long Range Precision Rifle Class was designed especially for you. You will be shooting amid the wild expanse of the surrounding San Juan Mountains with expert instruction and personal attention to your needs. We also provide the perfect atmosphere for you to to relax and recharge in the warm and welcoming atmosphere that defines our resort.

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.
