Arena Long Range Precision Rifle Course (Instructor: Robert Brantley)

September 28 - September 29

$500.00 – $675.00
Arena Long Range Precision Rifle Course is a 2 day course designed for shooters looking to take their long range game to the next level. We start from the ground up and use an easy yet proven process to build effective marksmen. We strive to make a comfortable learning environment that takes the intimidation out of long range. When this course is over you will have the knowledge and skills to be able to safely and effectively engage targets out to and past 1,000 yards. With a heavy emphasis on the how and why we will educate you on everything needed to be a proficient long range shooter. We will show you easy ways to tackle both prone and positional shooting. Whether your end goal is hunting, competition, or plinking we intend to make long range easy! Starting with a 2 hour block in the classroom we will quickly move across multiple ranges on Arena’s vast 2300 acre facility.
