May 19-20, 2018 at The Site Firearms Training Center
The Site Firearms Training Center is excited to host the Precision Rifle Competition Prep Training Course. This is not a precision rifle class but a course that addresses those factors that will aide both the novice and seasoned precision rifle competitor in preparing for, and improving their personal and/or team performance. The course will be a combination of classroom presentations and discussions followed by engaging stationary and moving steel targets out to 600 yards from commonly found competition stage set ups: vehicles, barricades, barrels, simulated roof tops etc.
The event will be lead by the Benchmark Barrels Team of Lucas Beitner and Ron Sinnema, winners of the 2017 Snipers Hide Team Challenge. https://www.snipershide.com/2017-snipers-hide-team-challenge-aar/
We’d never forget our female competitors; Kourtney Fleming of Benchmark Barrels, also a top competitor will be lending her expertise.
Manufacturer representatives who support and sponsor precision rifle organizations and competitions will be present to demo and discuss their products in addition to providing items for the give away table.
