Advanced Competition Class

This class is all about fine-tuning and honing of the basics to a new level of clarity. As we become more proficient at a particular skill time begins to slow and it seems as if we have more opportunity to visually and mentally process information. As a precision rifle competitor, this is what separates the mid-pack shooter from the upper 20% of the field.

We’ll help you manage recoil to increase your internal dwell time and show you how to look into your sight picture to find valuable information such as your own bullet’s trace and the precise spot the bullet lands to refine your wind call as close to center as possible. Your positions will be critiqued, tweaked, and solidified for the maximum amount of stability in the shortest amount of time. We’ll discuss mindset and how important it is to remain focused and grounded, maximizing your potential and performance.

You’ll come away from this class with a newfound respect for your own capabilities and a clear path forward to climb the ranks and achieve your goals.
