    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to drop a note and let you know that Storm Mountain Training Center (SMTC) is offering a reduced price for their hunter's marksmanship course offered on August 12-14, 2011.

    THE COST FOR THE COURSE HAS BEEN REDUCED FROM $500 to $250!

    I have trained at this school before and have always had a great experience. The instructors are top notch and the facilities are world class. Here is the information from the SMTC web site:

    With the high cost of hunting equipment, firearms,
    ammo, transportation, lodging, guides and licenses,
    why not invest in your shooting abilities too?
    Increase your odds of a clean first round kill on the
    trophy of your lifetime. Storm Mountain Training
    Center can prepare you and train you in up to date
    techniques and tactics which will make you a better
    hunter and marksman. Let our award winning
    instructors teach you the skills that they teach law
    enforcement and military snipers to make them
    the best marksman in the world.
    In three fun packed days, our instructor staff
    will cover:
    • Fundamentals of marksmanship
    • Ballistics
    • Wind calling
    • Elevation holds
    • Range Estimation
    • Camouflage, concealment and
    movement
    • Mountain angle shooting
    • Moving targets
    • Zeroing procedures
    • Unknown distance field fire on realistic
    and life-sized steel targets (100-750
    yards)
    In addition, we will coach and provide constant input/feedback which will provide positive improvement to your
    shooting. Most past students have cut their group size at 100 yards in half in two days and were hitting in the
    kill zones of deer, pigs, coyotes and ground hogs out to 500 yard on the first afternoon of the course.
    Ammunition requirements: 300 rounds.
    Prerequisite: None.
    Required equipment: Scoped rifle, data and/or log book; appropriate eye, ear, knee and elbow protection;
    clothing suitable for weather conditions.

    For further details on the course see:

    Best of all:

    THE COST FOR THE COURSE HAS BEEN REDUCED FROM $500 to $250!

    I plan to attend the course simply for a chance to shoot at their facility for three days. That alone is worth $250. The instruction they will provide me is a nice bonus.

    Happy Hunting,

    See Location

    The nearest town is Elk Garden, WV. The nearest town with decent services (Walmart, food, bars, etc) is Keyser, WV.

    If I fly I generally fly into Pittsburgh but D.C. is about the same distance. I come all the way from California to train here so that should tell you how highly I regard the training.

    Last time I was at SMTC I got GPS coordinates for the parking area. According to my Garmin the coordinates are:

    N 39°21.932' W079°06.493

    Just be sure you turn into the driveway if you use the GPS. My Garmin tells me to drive past the driveway and go off-road through a forest :). When I use an address with my GPS I use:

    Pinnacle Road
    Elk Garden, WV 26717

    Remember when you get to Pinnacle Road to go two miles to SMTC which is on your left. If you just put Pinnacle Road into your GPS it will drop you short of the training center.

    If you need to book a hotel I recommend:

    Microtel Inn And Suites Keyser
    70 North Tornado Way
    Keyser, WV 26726
    Phone: 304-597-1400
    Fax: 304-597-1406
