You deserve the world’s finest private long range shooting instruction and experiences. We are World Class Long Range Shooting Instructors, and 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 1 or 2 instructors.
- We do not work to make our offerings “cheap” 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.
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 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 long range shooting experiences?”
