Fighting Rifle Mastery is a small group, high quality workout of all of the topics we teach in the fighting rifle series. It is designed to provide intermediate and advanced level students an opportunity to fine tune technique, build confidence, and master all of the skills and knowledge in combat rifle craft.


Previous rifle training from Monarch Defense or other institution


Class sizes are small, giving maximum efficiency and hands on time with your instructor. For tuition, a suitable donation amount is $250, or I will accept anything between $175 and $350 per person.

Ammo for this class is separate from tuition. If you need ammunition, we keep most common calibers on hand for your convenience. There is no charge to borrow weapons and gear.


Our facility is in the mountains 1 hour east of San Jose. We will email you detailed driving instructions when you sign up.
