Intro to Precision Rifle Class

If you are signed up for our precision rifle class on March 26, you should have received an informational email with everything you need to know to prepare you for class. If you signed up for this class and haven't received that email, let me know ASAP.

The outlets I use are:

Take time to practice, and remember: how you practice is how you will perform. If you would like some pointers when you practice, I am almost always looking for an excuse to go to the range. Drop me a line sometime!
