Long Range Marksmanship: by John, Primary Instructor
Long Range Marksmanship – So you think you can shoot? Come put your marksmanship skills to the test at Max Velocity Tactical. The newly created Precision Marksmanship Range with target distances out to 1000 yards and new target array will push and hone your skills like no other. This course of instruction will guide you through the fundamentals of long range, advanced wind theory, multiple target interdiction at extended range, and unconventional shooting positions from areas of support.
Every time we run a LRMS Course we make changes to ensure we are providing the best possible course of instruction for our students. The highlights of changes that will occur at the next course are the following.
- Spotter Operations and Wind: This has previously only been a familiarization; we will now dedicate a portion of day 2 to allow students to spot for their assigned partner, this will allow the students to gain some real time experience and knowledge into proper wind calls and adjustments.
- Multiple Target Interdiction: A designated course of fire in which each shooter will be placed under time restrictions and given multiple targets to engage with a limited number of rounds.
- Barricade and Alternate Firing position: We will now be providing some advanced instruction on barricade and alternate firing positions; this will result in the students having a working knowledge base and the experience necessary to make shots when put into real world combat and competition scenarios.
- Precision Competition: We will end the course with a Long Range Precision Match, this will emulate the conditions of combat and the stressor’s involved in both combat and precision competition shooting.
The next Long Range Marksmanship Class is August 11 – 12.
