Ward Brien is the owner/inventor of the Angle Cosine Indicator and has an extensive background as a long range shooting instructor.

He offers classes for serious, experienced long range shooters/hunters who want to take their abilities to the next level.

The land he has available for this class looks amazing.

There is a limit to how many images I technically can show in this forum post but there are more available if you download the entire PDF brochure.

And here's a testimonial from one of his very satisfied students.

Looks like a great place to shoot and learn.


Maybe post up more specifics about course length, cost, equipment requirements, personal items to bring, etc...

Len,

I looked at that and it doesn't address any of the items I listed.

I think it would be a good thing to add for any person or persons that would really be interested in a course like this.

After talking to Ward, it sounds like a very beneficial course to take the next step to developing your shooting abilities and know your own capabilities.

I took a course from Ward last summer, the guy is top notch and knows his stuff. Hopefully I will be returning to Utah next summer to try his new course.
