Inside Darrell Holland's Long Range Shooting School By Ernie Bishop

Quote:
Having been a part of several long range shooting schools for specialty pistols, I was very impressed with the amount of information shared and the time shooting that could be accomplished in four days. The thing that stood out the most to me was the focus on building a good foundation. I have realized over the years, there are more hunters than one could imagine that do not know how to zero their scope or clean and maintain their rifle adequately. Add to that the pride men tend to have when it comes to being taught things, such as proper shooting technique in the field. Since many have been pulling the trigger before they could talk, or have hunted around the world successfully, it takes some time to change bad habits that show up quickly at longer distances. While I was there, one of the students shot a rifle for the first time in their life. It caused me to truly appreciate the systems approach to accuracy in the field with an emphasis on the basics.

Re: Inside Darrell Holland's Long Range Shooting School By Ernie Bishop

I really enjoyed the article Ernie, great job!

I'm still looking for a local area that will let me practice at the longer ranges. I'll find one eventually. Attending one of the schools like Holland's or Carlock's would be nice one day. It's clear the schools can save you a great deal of time on the learning curve.

Thanks again for the article.

Doug

Re: Inside Darrell Holland's Long Range Shooting School By Ernie Bishop

Congrats, Ernie on your new position! I really enjoyed the article having attended Darrell's school. The things I learned there have really helped me harvest game and connect at greater distances. I think Darrell is his own man and forms his opinions based on research and experience. His technical abilities enable him to assess things based on a scientific approach and he is , I believe , truly expert in the things he teaches. Also his ability to communicate those things is exceptional. I am sure you will help the students and also continue to learn yourself in that environment. Having the access to ask questions in that context is very valuable.

Good success to you and continued success to Darrell. 30-338

Ernie,
Great article, enjoyed it a lot, and learned from it also. Looking forward to take a course like that one in the future. I am sure Darrell Hollands Long Range Shooting School would be one of the best investments I can make in my long range shooting project. Thanks for the article and the info. Will be looking forward for the course.

Re: Inside Darrell Holland's Long Range Shooting School By Ernie Bishop

Nice article. I hope to be able to go thru one of the shooting schools this year.

One thing stood out at me from the article. "Coffee was available." When I was shooting small bore 3 position competition, we weren't allowed any coffee that morning before the shoot, and the coach really frowned on us having any caffine for a day or two before the match as well. I know prone from a bipod and a bag is slightly more stable than any position we had, but every little twitch counts!

But, I think some shooters that are used to caffine would really start twitching if made to go cold turkey!

I drink coffee all day long, I would have to smuggle coffee in!
