Mountain Precision Rifle is a three-day course set to challenge a shooter both physically and mentally by engaging targets using tripods and natural terrain to include high angles, cross canyon engagements, advanced wind reading and data collection. It will be a fun challenging experience that will enhance the participants overall shooting skills.
