    I'm about to send my rifle off to be rebarreled. It will be back some time in the early summer. The excitement is killing me. I can't wait. When I have it back, I'll post some before and after pics.

    I've done some long range shooting, but I'd like to take a course to improve my skills, learn what I don't know and maybe unlearn some bad habits.

    Can anybody recommend or just know of a course? If you could provide a web link, that would be great. Although, I'm in Virginia, I'd be willing to take some vacation time to travel to a quality school.

    thanks

    Storm Mountian Training Center is in West Virginia.

    Training Division


    There are three levels of Long Range Rifle, maximum distance will be about 750 yards in Long Range Rifle I (LRR I), 1000 yards (LRR II) and there is also a shooting movers class (LRR III).

    I've heard good things about those schools. Here is another option. Darrell Holland sent me this message as he was returning from SHOT.

    There is the one run by Goodgrouper in Paradise, Utah.

    If you should go and do any kayaking on the Little bear and find my glasses in the river bottom don't bother bringing them back because my prescription has changed.

    Thanks for all the great referrals everybody. I think I know what I'm doing for summer vacation.

    Does anybody have any more suggestions?
