Student Reviews:

"I highly endorse Bryce and his team for the 2-day intro to long range class in Price, Utah. Bryce took this 58-year old who hadn't shot beyond 50 yards and had me hitting steel at 100-yard increments to 1000 yards...not only 1 but  2 hits with 2 shots. I am still in awe and look forward to his March or April 2020 classes to improve my skills even further. Hope to see you there."

- Cordell, Clearfield, Utah

"It's so cool to learn exactly how to shoot. I just went from a complete rookie to be hitting an 18" target at 1000 yards. This was the most fun I've had in a long, long time."

- Wally, Provo, UT

"Within 4 hours we were hitting every 100 yards out to 1000 yards.  300, 400 and 500 yards seem like nothing now"

- Jeff, Park City, UT

"There wasn't a single part of the class where I wasn't having fun and learning something new.  Hearing that "ding" at 1000 yard was so awesome, I'm still grinning"

- Cade, Salt Lake City, UT
