Set on three mountain ranches west of Fort Collins, this 3-Day Course focuses on high-angle long range precision rifle shooting. Course instruction is heavy on fundamentals, positional shooting, platform building, and firing from alternate positions. Information and more details will be given upon registration for the course. Students may encounter weather extremes to include: heat, rain, snow, hail, high winds, or possibly the best weather ever, because it's Colorado. Targets will range from 100-1500 yards.
**Important Notice: This is not a basic course. The student needs to be well aware of how their equipment works, a solid understanding of their rifle and optics, and prior instruction in precision rifle shooting is necessary to insure that each student is capable covering advanced high-angle long range shooting concepts.
**The student must be able to move well while carrying gear on trails.
**Rifles must be suppressed, or at least have the capability to be suppressed.
