Magpul Dynamics has announced an offering for their Long Range Precision Rifle Course in the Northwest. The course will be offered in Yakima, Washington from November 13-16, 2014 and will cost $750.
I have not personally attended a Magpul Dynamics instruction course, but their video instruction series has been a very popular item for the company for many years. The Long Range Precision Rifle Course is an entry-level course for police snipers or those interested in honing long range rifle skills.
The Long Range Precision Rifle Course covers:
- Precision Weapon Nomenclature
- Weapon Set-Up and Accessories
- Fundamentals of Marksmanship
- Telescopic Sight Theory and Operation
- Angular Units of Measure (MOA)
- Introduction to Reticle Holds and Danger Space
- Precision Rifle and Optic Manipulation
- Analyzing and Recording Shot Data
- External Ballistics and Ballistic Software Operation
- Range Estimation Techniques
- Effects of Weather, Wind, and Mirage
- Unconventional Shooting Positions
The course appears to cover a solid base of information to provide a shooter a good foundation in precision marksmanship skills. With the course located near Yakima, WA it appears there could be a great opportunity to test shooters not only for long range shooting, but the effects of wind. The price for this 4-day course seems to be reasonable for what the shooter is going to receive. Registration is usually best reserved within 30 days of the course date, so if you’re in the Northwest and are interested I recommend contacting Magpul Dynamics as soon as possible.
