Precision Rifle 201. Taking the next steps in your progression to being the most well-rounded rifleman you can become. During Precision Rifle 101, you learned the basics of what makes the precision shooting system work, and you received specific diagnostic tools and shooting drills to refine your newfound skills. Precision Rifle 201 will continue to build on those skills through a deeper understanding of how to advance your basic skills to the next level.
Precision Rifle 201 isn’t your typical “advanced” shooting class. We’re not promising ninja status upon completion, or that you’re going to win competitions with your newfound secret sauce. What we will promise is that you’ll come away with an understanding that “advanced” shooters simply execute the basics with the utmost level of consistency. During Precision Rifle 201 we’ll focus heavily on mindset, and how you can cultivate a mindset that keeps you in the moment. You’ll discover the importance of having your mind connected to your body, and the increased level of awareness that comes with that. Through this heightened level of awareness, you’ll be able to de-clutter your mind so it can focus on the more complex problems we face as precision shooters.
We’ll focus our first day on a recap of the basics, and get a pulse on where everyone is at skillswise for the course. From there, we’ll jump into purpose built shooting drills meant to isolate certain factors regarding the fundamentals of marksmanship and the mechanics of how we interact with our rifles. We’ll shoot up close, and we’ll shoot out at distance. We’ll focus on tasks and skills piece by piece, building your competence, and your confidence at the same time.
