This is a two-day course designed for the novice marksman, but it is highly encouraged and recommended for those who have had little or no formal training to attend. We promote a friendly and professional environment that puts new shooters at ease. We specialize in making you comfortable while giving you the best learning environment possible. A fast-paced course, it will begin with firearms safety and rapidly transition into equipment comprehension, fundamentals of marksmanship, basic ballistics, wind reading, range estimation, mover targets, and target engagements to 1000 yards. This course will utilize the world-class K&M Shooting Complex, fully taking advantage of multiple ranges on site. Students that complete the course will have basic proficiency in firearm safety, and marksmanship fundamentals, a combined knowledge of their personal capabilities with their equipment, and systematic training methods for future progression.
K&M utilizes combat-proven and competitively accomplished cadre. The diversification of our instructors provides a broad perspective and the best talent available from Special Operations, Law Enforcement, Military Sniper Instructors, and the highest-ranked Civilian PRS Competitors. This unique blend of expertise and experience, combined with a dedicated and purpose-built facility, is simply unrivaled. It allows us to offer the most efficient and professional training available.
