"Purpose Driven Training"

Firearms training that evolves beyond simple marksmanship and into the realm of the martial art.

Course Goal

Even in it’s basic form, the AR-15 is a remarkably accurate rifle, but as we all know marksmanship in the field is different than a rifle resting on a bench at the gun club . The Precision Marksmanship class is not a sniper class. This course is for those rare breed of humans who have tendencies to walk away from civilization from time to time. The Field Marksmanship course teaches the AR-15 owner how to exploit the light weight AR-15’s long range accuracy potential from a stock rifle, while in the field, with minimal supporting equipment. Expensive add-on equipment is not necessary. In this class you will set your rifle up for the 24/7 “Go-To” bug out configuration This is the course that every survivalist should have in their “tool box”.
