NRA Introduction To Long Range Shooting – 9/6/20
- The NRA’s Competitive Shooting Division is proud to present an incredible, affordable, one-day school designed for the new to intermediate long range shooter. We realize that it’s difficult to understand how to get started in long range shooting. We also understand that even for shooters with some long range experience, becoming proficient at longer ranges can seem like a difficult goal to achieve.
- In this very special school, we’ll help you understand how to get you and your rifle on track for success. We’ll start in the classroom and and then move to long distance ranges for live fire. In this unique course you can bring your firearm or rent one of ours!
