    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
