This course will build your rifle shooting fundamentals and skills with the scoped rifle.

This course focuses on the principles of shooting a scoped rifle, and teaches students to effectively and confidently shoot out to 300 yards. Either a bolt action or semi-automatic weapon maybe used. This class does not allow red dot holographic or prism scopes, only “traditional” rifle scopes are allowed.

Using the “crawl, walk, run” philosophy, students will learn and practice basic and intermediate scoped rifle skills and shooting fundamentals both in the classroom and on the live-fire range.

Students will learn the capabilities of their scoped rifle while implementing new skills to become a more effective rifle shooter. This course is perfect for the hunter, sport-shooter, or anyone wanting to increase their rifle shooting abilities.
