Previous Student Feedback:

“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
