This class is designed so that it is suited to all skill levels. You will learn all aspects of LR shooting techniques. You will leave this class with a good basic understating of weapon handling, positioning, ballistics and more so that you are able to acquire and engage targets from 400-1300 yards consistently. You may shoot our custom built rifles if you choose. There is a half day of classroom and 1 1/2 days behind the gun. You will spend this time shooting across the sheer cliffs and canyons of the San Juan Mountains which is definitely a plus!
After class kick back and enjoy a home cooked meal and a local brew at Smokey's Tavern. After dinner, it is time to sit by the campfire or retire to your room for a massage. You will leave us relaxed and recharged.
Includes well-appointed lodging for three nights and all meals, snacks and non alcoholic beverages. We do have a fully stocked onsite bar for purchase of alcoholic beverages after the shooting is done. Many of our class participants bring along a spouse or friend for a daily rate who may have access to the handgun range or shoot LR but not take the class. We also have horseback riding, hiking, massages, a hot tub and plenty of opportunity for relaxation. We also welcome well behaved dogs!
