If you are taking a Peacemaker training class and or shooting in a Peacemaker competition, WE WILL HAVE AMMO FOR YOU TO SHOOT. You can purchase your ammo on your training or match day at our HQ building!


The PRS Pro Tips Weekend is a 2-Day Training Event like no other. The event focuses on allowing all levels of long range shooters the opportunity to shoot PRS stages with a PRS PRO LEVEL SHOOTER We'll have hand picked instructors on each stage training you on specific nuances of PRS & to relay techniques to you on how to shoot PRS matches better.

Attention Rifle Shooters, do you have an MOA or better rifle and scope combo? Can you shoot groups at 100 yards that hide behind a quarter, nickel or even a dime? Have you ever wanted to compete in a PRS match but don’t think you can because your only shooting experience is from a bench or prone?  Have you attended a precision rifle match with positional shooting and felt your performance suffered due to your lack of practice on improvised or positional shooting skills? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions then we have the training event for you.


Shooter must have rifle and ammo capable of 1 MOA or better at 100 yards.  Rifle must have a good zero prior to event day. Scope must have exposed turrets with the ability to dial for elevation. Scope must also have reticle in MIL or MOA with graduations to hold over and under. Shooter must have adequate drop chart out to 1,000 yards.  If you or your equipment does not meet these requirements please email us to discuss a private training block to get you up to speed before the event.
