Study groups are flexible, casual, and high quality opportunities to train in an intimate small group environment with your instructor and fellow students of a variety of skill levels. Study Groups are a hybrid between private custom training, which can be prohibitively expensive, and open enrollment group classes, which can be busy and chaotic and at inconvenient times. If you have scheduling flexibility and you want to train in a semi-private and more intimate manner for a wide variety of topics, consider joining our new Study Group program.


To sign up, you will pay 1 cent. This is a symbolic gesture that signifies your commitment to attending, and binds us into the relationship of teacher and student. You can pay the tuition for this class as you see fit; Generally speaking any amount from $50 to $250 is acceptable. You can send tuition via Venmo to Brian-Wang-11 or Paypal to Info@monarchdefense.org, or bring cash in person. We can also trades for labor, ammunition, or equipment. If you have questions about ammo availability and cost, or our donation pricing, call 408-892-5460.


9am till your wife/girlfriend/husband/boyfriend/mother/father/pimp/madam/dog/cat/iguana/goldfish calls you for the third time asking where the hell you are, likely well after dark.

It is not a bad idea to come the afternoon/evening ahead of time and camp out. We can provide you a hot shower, make breakfast and coffee and there’s even a nice bucket to poo in!


Our facility is located in the Diablo Range, and hour and a half east of downtown San Jose, an hour and a half south of Livermore, 2 hours from San Francisco or Oakland. No, we are not in San Jose city limits; Yes, San Jose is the nearest city. No matter which direction you come from, there will be roughly 1 hour of fairly technical and winding mountain roads for you to navigate. Suck it up buttercup. Not willing to make the drive? Try golf instead. Think the drive takes too long? Just teleport, it’s easy! Detailed directions will be emailed to you after you sign up.

We’ll meet at the 100 yard range and review fundamentals concepts of precision rifle shooting, discuss what causes folks to succeed or struggle, discuss in great detail rifle setup, troubleshooting, zeroing, ammunition selection, tactics, and shooting technique. We will then break into small groups to practice, zero, and chronograph.  

In the afternoon, we will set out a few targets at an unknown distances, and we will take turns engaging the targets, to practice, build confidence, and gather DOPE, then we will move farther back for more challenge.

You really should take Introduction to Fighting Rifle before joining the precision rifle program.
