Duration: 9 hours

There are no upcoming classes scheduled for this course. target icon


Once a shooter conquers distances of 100 and 200 yards it becomes almost foolish to spend centerfire ammo at these ranges. Even a budget rifle is capable of hitting targets more than half a mile away with quality ammo and optic, as long as the shooter is up to the task.

Just a short ride to Lewistown Pennsylvania (4 hours from Nassau County) and you will find our Long range course where in just one day we will teach you how to hit targets past up to and including your rifles maximum range as we engage steel out to distances in excess of 1,000 yards.

This course is proudly sponsored by Champion Targets as they have provided enough steel for each 100 yard increment!

Long range experience is not required for this course as it is intended for beginners, however experience with your rifle and optic are mandatory.
