This three day course is intended as a followup to our Basic Precision Marksman course is focused on reinforcing the concepts and lessons taught in the basic course as well as introduce more advanced concepts and techniques. The Precision Marksman – Basic course is a prerequisite to attending this school. A similar course from a different training facility can be substituted in place of our PM-Basic course provided proof of attendance is can be verified. (Send a copy of certificate, etc) The course starts where the basic course ended with long range unknown distance shooting and then moves into additional advanced topics. Depending on the location of the class, these topics can include moving targets, high angle shooting, calculating hold overs and hold offs, rapid fire engagements, stress fire and alternate firing positions including off hand firing and snap shots. The course is taught in a manner to promote learning in a friendly manner with an emphasis on quality shooting, not quantity. This course is open to LE, Military and Civilians. There is a decent amount of walking and other physical stresses including potentially hot and cold temperatures as well as wet weather, so please be prepared. The class is open to Canadians and other foreign students as well, but be aware that if you plan to bring and use your own firearm from out of country, there are ATF regulations that need to be followed. It is not difficult, but the paperwork does require a little bit of time to get approved from the ATF. Contact the ATF for more info.
