This being a wind reading clinic, we’re going to want some specific tools to learn from, but luckily we’ve got a slew of instruments for your to use, courtesy of our friends at Gunwerks. Hit us up if you’d like to purchase one, we’ll be happy to offer a discount code for you! As for the rest of your shooting gear, it’s pretty basic stuff if you’ve been shooting for a while. This being a wind clinic, we’ll be doing a lot of prone shooting, working on eliminating as many variables from the shot as possible so we can focus on the wind call itself. Nothing super special with gear, outside of a bubble level which is mandatory for this course.
