While Brian is away, most classes will be facilitated in a study group format led by experienced and qualified students who volunteer their time to provide their expertise and instruction. Study groups are flexible, casual, and high-quality opportunities to train in an intimate small group environment with subject matter experts and fellow students of a variety of skill levels.

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.

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 if you need us to supply ammo, please include a note during checkout or contact us at


9am to 5pm or whenever we finish during the summer months, 7am to 3pm during the winter months

We can only teach the class at the students’ pace. 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, unfair to others, and it wastes time for everyone.
