Training with Patriot Armory
Precision Long Range Course
This is a three-day course that is split between two to three weeks for locals of the state of Arizona. This course is designed for those with some marksman skills, but we highly encourage and recommend those with little to no formal training to attend. We provide a friendly and professional environment. Our goal is to make you comfortable while providing you with the best learning environment possible. The course’s pace is based on the level of our student’s knowledge. The course will begin with firearms safety and transition into a student evaluation on marksmanship fundamentals, equipment overview, basic ballistics, range estimation, wind reading, and target engagements out to 1100 yards.
