Sniper Courses

Sniper 1 and 2 Courses

Experience the best sniper training and tactical precision rifle techniques taught anywhere! Learn to apply precision shooting skills under any all conditions, placing emphasis on how to fight with a sniper rifle instead of simply shooting bulls eyes. For experienced shooters, this enhances, reinforces and tests on demand shooting & mental skills.
