4 Day Precision Rifle

A four day course for those students who want to learn the skills required to make first round hits out to and beyond 750 yards!

 

The change to the Prerequisites will be EFFECTIVE 01 January 2019. A Distinguished Graduate certificate in Practical Rifle and taking Fundamentals of Precision Rifle will no longer qualify you for Precision Rifle. You must meet the new prerequisites, (Distinguished Graduate in the four day Rifle Marksmanship and take Precision Rifle Fundamentals at least once), or previous attendance in Precision Rifle will also satisfy the new prerequisites.

Prerequisite Class(s): Distinguished Graduate in the 4-Day Practical Rifle (until 12/07/2018), 4-Day Rifle Marksmanship, or 2-Day Rifle Skill Builder (until 12/07/2018) course AND attendance in the 1-Day Precision Rifle Fundamentals course OR have previously attended Precision Rifle.

Precision Rifle Training

In the first two days of this course, students will practice and perfect their marksmanship skills out to 400 yards. Exercises include setting up your rifle, zeroing your rifle, calling your shots, understanding your scope and turrets, shooting a tall target test, and more.

Instruction emphasizes marksmanship, the importance of consistency, wind-reading skills, dialing proper scope adjustments, and the use of modern tools such as a Kestrel meter and ballistic apps to calculate precise firing solutions.

In the afternoon of Day 2, all participants will shoot a skills test at the 400-yard line. Students who pass this test will move to our 800-yard range for Day 3 and Day 4 and will hone their longer-range skills.

Students who do not pass this skills test in the current class will continue for two more days on our 400-yard range to increase their level of confidence and proficiency with their chosen rifle system.

NOTE: This Day 2 skills test must be taken each time the student attends the 4-Day Precision Rifle course. The determination of whether the student moves to our 800-yard range or continues on our 400-yard range will be based solely and completely on the studentís current Day 2 skills test in their current class. Previous scores on this Day 2 skills test from past classes will not be considered.

This course represents a combination of the previous Front Sight Precision Rifle 1 and Precision Rifle 2 courses, and takes the place of both.
