Designated Marksman Rifle

The Designated Marksman is a three-day rifle course geared towards the DMR platform (no pistols are allowed).  Target engagement will range from 600 yards inward, challenging shooters with a carbine rifle experience but stretching the boundaries of a 5.56 or .308.

This class is for the DMR Platform. Rental rifles may be available for use during this course.   Low-powered variable optics are the MINIMUM for this course, but a larger magnified optic will be recommended.  Bipods are not mandatory but will certainly give a great advantage and are highly encouraged. This course will require students to carry gear at least 100-200 yards to a shooting position.

Tuition: 750.00

Class begins each day at 8:30 a.m. and generally lasts until 5:30 p.m. (If you plan to travel home by air on the last day, please be prepared to stay in class until 5:30 p.m.)
