Precision shooting is quite a bit more than what meets the eyes. Balancing the application of art and science, the components that go into the precision shooting system are critical pieces to the puzzle. Success in this world is measured by consistency with regard to the rifle, optic, and ammunition. Expanding on that a bit further we’ll discover that the shooter is the fourth and final component in the circle. The shooter is also the weakest link because we’re human beings.
We brought this course to fruition because over the years we’ve discovered that a significant amount of time in a basic or entry level precision rifle course is spent on ensuring that a student’s rifle was assembled properly, fasteners torqued to the proper specifications, the rifle scope was mounted in the correct position for the shooter’s eye relief, etc. The list goes on and on. Your time is valuable, and we understand that. We strive to develop curriculum that’s based on a systematic and common sense approach to communicating information. Setting up your rifle is a process, and if it’s not followed correctly you’ll end up chasing rabbits down dark and endless holes, spending hours on internet forums sifting through everyone’s two-cents on what they think you should do.
Let us coach you through the circle of components and show you how to lock down all the possible variables in your system. By the time you complete this training you’re going to have an in-depth understanding of your precision shooting system like you’ve never had before. You’ll know these components inside and out, and with that knowledge you’ll be able to troubleshoot eventual problems you’ll experience down the road on your own.
