Re: Defensive Edge Long Range Classes - 2013 Dates

What a treat it was to spend a few days with Shawn and Bob in 2011 at their shooting class!

You guys really owe it to yourself to do this.

Shawn and Bob taught us how to read the side winds and updrafts in the canyons of Idaho this well:

3 shots by 3 shooters with 3 different rifles into 3 inches at 835 yards



Defensive Edge Long Range Shooting Class -- REVIEW
Quote:
It was the last day of the long range shooting class given by Shawn Carlock of Defensive Edge. The three shots went into 3 inches at 835 yards. That’s pretty good long range shooting. But what if I told you this long range shooting group consisted of 3 first-round hits shot by 3 different shooters using 3 different long range rifles?

There was some side-wind, mirage and an occasional updraft. We three shooters were out to show our teacher what we could do as a result of 4 days of intensive instruction on long range shooting at one of the best long range shooting classes in the country. Located in the mountains of northern Idaho, the venue was ideal for learning or fine-tuning long range wind reading skills.
