Due to high demand Gunsite has added a Precision Rifle Class and a 270 General Rifle Class to our 2015 schedule. The dates are June 8-12 for the 270 General Rifle and June 15-19 for the Long Range (Precision Rifle) class.
270 Rifle: “The Jewel of Battle”, Jeff Cooper. The Gunsite 270 Class is to the rifle what the Modern Technique is to the pistol. The Gunsite 270 Class 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. It is essential for all manner of outdoorsmen from ranchers, farmers, geologists, fishermen, and sportsmen.
Long Range Rifle: Most students who come the Gunsite leave never having seen even a third of the facility. Pistol shooters get as far as the Play House, Carbine and 270 students get as far as the Vlei. But what most people don’t realize is that we have another 3000 yards (1.7 miles) of space to the north of the Woodfill berm. What do we do with this area? Well the precision rifle shooters know.
The LRR class trains the shooter to engage targets out to 900 yards with the focus on achieving a first round hit on man size targets after determining the range and calling the wind. Students work in two shooter teams to develop these skills.
