Please park in this parking area. You are welcome to use the restrooms in the clubhouse, at the skeet range, or near the tactical bays. We look forward to a fast paced, safe, and challenging class with you.

Requirements

- Rental guns will be available.

- Clean, functional rifle with magnification optics mounted and zeroed (Please make sure your rifle is functional!)  

- A quality turret adjustable scope is recommended. We will confirm zero at the start of class, but we expect your rifle to be zeroed prior to class. 

- Students will need to understand the adjustments of their scope and bring the manual for it if you need it (the manual will likely be available to print off the internet). Don't stress if you can't find it - we'll help you figure it out, but it's helpful. 

Rifle or optic specific tools if you need to make adjustments. (i.e. allen wrenches)

Rifle magazine(s) if required to fire

- Rear bag, Front bag or bipod, or pack capable of functioning as front bag

- At least 50 rounds of good quality ammunition appropriate for your rifle

- Eye and ear protection

- Notebook or logbook with pen or pencil

We will have you download ballistics software on your phone prior to class.

A few reminders for class. We will begin at 8:00 AM at the 100m range. We should be finishing up around 4-4:30ish. Be aware of outdoor temperatures and prepare accordingly. If it's raining, plan on meeting at the clubhouse. If the skies are clear, we will begin at the 100m range. Feel free to show up earlier if you'd like as we will chronograph each individual rifle first.
