270 Rifle Class
“The Jewel of Battle”, Jeff Cooper. The Gunsite 270 Class is to the rifle what the Modern Technique is to the pistol. This is a comprehensive course in the essential elements of safety and field rifle-craft. It should be mandatory for all young boys and girls prior to achieving adulthood.
Learning to operate a rifle is essential for all manner of outdoorsmen including ranchers, farmers, geologists, fishermen, and sportsmen. It is especially useful for hunters. Whether a novice or a shooter who wants to enhance existing skills, the 270 will challenge and strengthen your marksmanship where it really counts — in the field.
The class will provide a thorough understanding of exterior and terminal ballistics at ranges from 25 to 300 yards, and clients will learn to hit quickly from standing (offhand), kneeling, sitting and prone positions. Clients will hone their skills in simulators paralleling conditions in the field, with an emphasis on quick target acquisition at extended and unknown ranges. By the end of your course, if you can see it, you’ll probably be able to hit it – on demand and under time pressure.
