This is considered to be an intermediate level course, so you’ll probably already have a grasp on what you like. However, for the newer shooters let’s start this off by saying that you don’t need the latest and greatest gear that everyone in the competitive world is using to be successful in precision shooting! All the whiz-bang attachments for your rifle with bags and pods and pads are trick, but we’ll volunteer a bet (conditions of said bet determined individually) that after this course you’ll find yourself needing a rifle, a shooting bag, and your body. Your success is determined by you and you only! Bring what you have, and use this training course as an opportunity to see what really works for you. We have a slew of gear for you to use in the event you want to try it out or don’t have something, so please before you spend a bunch of money, ask us first!!
