About Steele Precision Shooting LLC

The owner and Primary Instructor for Steele Precision Shooting LLC is Joel Steele.  He currently maintains NRA Rifle, Pistol, and Personal Protection Instructor qualifications. 

Joel served 5 years as an FBI Special Agent, as well as a SWAT Operator and Sniper.  With specialized training across a large spectrum of Law Enforcement and SWAT skills, Joel chose to focus on the Sniper Program.  Following Advanced Sniper qualifications, Joel instructed the TCOLE 3324 Sniper curriculum in Texas for over a dozen jurisdictions, on multiple occassions. 

Prior the FBI, Joel instructed the NRA's Pistol and Personal Protection curriculums for two years, alongside private security work.

Joel served 8 years in the US Marine Corps, with training and deployment experience across a broad spectrum of combat arms operations, in Command and Advisor roles.  Along with multiple Instructor ratings in the Martial Arts and Foreign Weapons Programs, Joel competed in several competitive shooting styles, including those now associated with PRS/NRL, and maintained Expert qualifications across the rifle and pistol platforms.

Joel grew up competing in shooting sports, such as 4H Rimfire and 300m Benchrest, along with being a lifelong hunter across the many terrains of Texas.  He has experience as a hunting guide and has a passion for applying technical long range shooting and Sniper skills to hunting scenarios and situations, while working with both Adult and Youth shooters.


There are several top-notch locations with replete instructor groups across the US, who focus on long range shooting.  While truly excellent, and Joel has trained at more than a few of them, they can be expensive and intimidating.  The range supporting Steele Precision Shooting LLC is neither a golf course nor a luxury resort.  It has everything you need to train and few other frills.  It is a precision rifle only venue, but supports up through .50 caliber of that type.  There are no investors and no members vying for lane time. It is private, away from public view/access, fully insured, and all class sizes are held to small capacity.  It was designed this way intentionally, so top quality instruction could be offered at an extremely reasonable price point, with a high emphasis on quality control. 

Our target group is those on the newer to intermediate shooter level.  Newly created in 2023, Steele Precision Shooting LLC is already working on venue expansion for UKD ranges, NRL Hunter type shooting lanes, and expanded target arrays for future course expansion.
