LONG-RANGE PRECISION 2
Building on LRP 1, this 3-day class takes shooters to a truly advanced level. You’ll learn how to accurately read wind, spot your shots, adjust for conditions, shoot at high angles, and make clutch shots under high pressure.
- Additional information
It is one thing to shoot accurately when conditions are good, but another altogether to perform under stress and when conditions are difficult. The real world application of marksmanship training means a mastery of the basics and demonstration of those skills in increasingly challenging conditions and situations. Building on the skills Long-range Precision 1 course, Long-range Precision 2 will challenge you to maintain accuracy while shooting at increasing distances, smaller targets, greater angles, in unconventional positions, and under stress. Our goal is that you walk away from this course with all the knowledge and confidence you need to perform well in almost any scenario.
This course held over a consecutive 3-day period from 0800 to 1700 hours each day (e.g. full days, Thursday through Sunday). If you are coming in from out of the area, see our FAQs page for more information on travel and lodging arrangements.
