Introduction to Precision Rifle will allow you to explore the art and science of precision rifle and sniper craft in an organized and logical manner. This class is moderately paced, beginner friendly, but will require some real note taking, attention to detail, and high school level math.
Thorough understanding of firearm safety, including use of force doctrine, loading and unloading, muzzle discipline while moving, and safety manipulation.
Basic understanding of rifle trajectory, and battle sight zero theory (BZO)
Experience shooting rifles from the prone position
Proficient in basic marksmanship: 4 minute of angle with standard rifle/ammunition
Firearm Safety and Self Defense highly recommended
Introduction to Fighting Rifle (FR1) highly recommended
A suitable donation is $250 per person for tuition, but I will accept any amount between $175 and $350. This type of training requires a small class size and lots of hands on attention. Typical classes are 3-6 students.
Ammo for this class is separate from tuition, and we can provide it for most common calibers. If you have questions, you can contact Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 408-892-5460.
9am to 7pm or whenever we finish during the summer months, 7am to 5pm during the winter months
We can only teach the class at the student’s pace. Therefore we cannot give you an exact end time. If you wish to attend this class, you must stay until we end so that we may debrief, turn in borrowed equipment, and clean up.
Clear your schedule, and expect to be in class for the entire day. Students leaving early is a huge distraction, and it wastes time for everyone else. It is selfish, unfair to the other students, and will not be tolerated. Sign up only if you plan to be there for the entirety the class, including final exercise, debrief, and cleanup.
Valley of Orion, in the vicinity of Mount Hamilton and San Antonio Valley. 1 hour east of San Jose, 1 hour south from Livermore. Detailed directions will be emailed to those who sign up.
