Precision Rifle 1

The Jericho Defense Precision Rifle 1 class is devoted to the fundamental art of rifle marksmanship with a optically enhanced precision rifle. This course is intended for the person who is a beginner or has a very basic knowledge in long range precision shooting using a scoped rifle, the person who needs to develop a solid foundation of precision marksmanship skills, or the experienced person who just wants to enhance their existing shooting foundation or learn new skills that focus on the fundamentals and accuracy with a precision long rifle. This is not your typical F-class or target shooting class, this is devoted to the fundamentals of precision rifle fire and precision rifle fire when under some stress. If you are a hunter using a scoped rifle, a law enforcement sniper, military sniper or someone that just loves shooting precision rifles, this class will definitely give you a solid base to hone your craft.
