What kind of people sign up for your courses?fusiongroupusa
I am asked in almost every conversation I have with perspective students, “What kind of people sign up for your courses?” It’s as if I have a preference for working with students of a certain skill level, gender, physical ability, age, or personality temperament. Well, I don’t! One of the things I love about Crosswind is that we draw a diverse student group, often working with beginners with a brand-new rifles and highly-experienced shooting match champions at the same time. Our school attracts students from all over the country and some from outside the US. We have had students of all ages, from 15 years old to over 80 years old. We are delighted to see more and more ladies in our courses as women are increasingly interested in participating in PRS matches and looking to extend their ethical shot ranges while hunting. Trust me, if you are reading this blog, you are the type of person who signs up for our courses.
For our Long-range Precision 1 course, we commonly teach students who range in experience from those who have never shot past 200 yards to expert shooters looking to complete their DOPE out to a mile. Even with this range of experience in the same course, everyone benefits from the content provided. Our courses move at a pace that is comfortable for each individual. Our student to instructor ratio of 3 students to 1 instructor means that each student gets the personal attention that they need regardless of their level of skill. No student is ever rushed and no student is ever left waiting. We get very positive feedback after every course stating how comfortable the pace was and how thorough the attention and instruction was for every student.
If you’re looking to attend our Long-range Precision 2 course, we’d like you to have completed Long-range Precision 1 or a comparable course from another training company (let us know which one; we’ll identify eligibility on a case-by-case basis). This course will also have a mix of very different skills and abilities, ages, and genders. Long-range Precision 2 takes the shooter to a new level utilizing moving targets, unconventional positions, and more, culminating with a taste of PRS (Precision Rifle Series) at the end.
Those that want the traditional “sniper” training should sign up for the SniperCraft course. This course includes most of the skills taught in the LRP1 course, but with added emphasis on the practical and real-world skill applications taught in military sniper training. In addition to fundamentals of shooting, gathering DOPE, and calling wind, students will train in fieldcraft topics such as camouflage considerations, ghillie suit construction, FFP (Final Firing Position) selection, stalking, and many more tactics and techniques. The final day of this course brings that classroom skills into sharp focus with a challenging live-fire mission to complete. This course has proved invaluable to all types of shooters and, in my opinion, is one of our most enjoyable courses to teach.
I hope this provides answers to some of the questions concerning what types of students we see in our courses. We welcome all types and all abilities and will make sure you leave satisfied and equipped with better shooting skills. Give us a call if you have any further questions.
Any of these courses are a great gift for friends and family. Call us about a gift certificate today.
