K&M Precision Rifle Training started as a simple idea between two professionals deeply involved in the shooting community. The initial concept was minimal; offer unrivaled training and host a few competitions. Very quickly the personalities of these two friends mixed and the simple idea was not going to be good enough for the K&M name and their reputations. Within days additional acreage was purchased and comprehensive plan was drawn from the ground up. The goal was to purposely build the best training facility in the country. We also wanted to offer the regional shooters a place to practice and provide the community the most professionally administered training available.
Firm believers in the virtues of “quiet professionalism” we vowed not to fall into the hyped emotional sales pitches that infect so much of our community. Instead we wanted to let professionalism and word of mouth become the K&M calling card. No over sensationalized talk, slogans or attitudes, no resume padding or singing your own praises. Just complete, up to date, world class, no nonsense training that is second to none.
While we continue to finalize and improve the K&M concept we will let others judge the outcome of the facility and our training with confidence. In the meantime we will continue to expand, train hard and do it in manner that represents the community responsibly. We invite you to consider us for your training needs and are confident you will not be disappointed.
Thank you to all that have supported us. Without you K&M would not be possible!
