Long Range Rifle Immersion Level Two:
Course Brief: This course is for experienced rifle shooters that want to push their individual abilities with a precision rifle in varying conditions and environments beyond just static bench or prone shooting. It applies to many different aspects of marksmanship including military/law enforcement, competition, and hunting. Anyone interested in placing precision fire on point targets at or near the maximum effective range of their rifle under imposed stress will learn the art and science involved in doing so in this course. 

THIS IS NOT A BASIC COURSE. As with all of our ADVANCED courses, it has a relatively complex curriculum. This course will utilize the entire 80 acre facility, fully taking advantage of all the ranges on-site. Students that complete the course will have a proficiency in handling a firearm under stress conditions, advanced marksmanship fundamentals, and a combined knowledge of their personal capabilities with their equipment.

The course concludes with our Advanced Precision Rifle Qualification Course, an exercise covering 40 acres where the student will be required to read maps, stalk from position to position, identify and range targets, report via radio, and engage targets out to 500 yards from improvised positions within a given time constraint. Students who achieve a 80% score or better course will receive a certificate of qualification.

Long Range Rifle Immersion Level Three
Course Brief: 
Long range shooting is all about quantitative data and consistency. This course is designed for you to discover what you, along with your weapon system, are truly capable of. Picking up where we left off at the LRI-2, students will get to dope their guns out to 1000 yards, in 100 yard increments. Fundamentally you will attain greater confidence in yourself, your rifle and your optic. Anyone can hold tight groups at 100 yards, but pushing targets out to 800, 900 and 1000 yards, while shooting from realistic positions will truly test your equipment and skills. This course (like our LRI – 2 course) has a qualification element to it. All students that receive a 80% or more score will receive a certificate of completion.
