Our Approach

You deserve the world’s finest private long range shooting instruction and experiences. We are World-Record-Holding Long Range Shooting Instructors, and we look forward to serving YOU.

What we are NOT:

  • We are not rifle builders that offer training as a rifle sales technique.
  • We do not focus on group classes with 10+ students and only 1 or 2 staff instructors.
  • We do not work to make our offerings “cheap” in order to increase our student volume.

We choose instead to focus on making sure you have a wonderful time while learning to be an excellent long range shooter.

Our Story

After starting the luxury entertainment shooting experience sector of the shooting instruction market, the next step was to fill a new void.  The world lacked a high-end option for successful professionals to expand their log range shooting skills or to simply have a turn key long range shooting experience.  Our sister company Jackson Hole Shooting Experience offers luxury entertainment shooting experiences that are rated higher than any other thing to do in Jackson Hole.  We thought, “Why not create an even higher-end offering for private extreme long range shooting experiences?”
