The Precision Rifle Basic course is conducted at the MRRA Off-Site Training Facility and focuses on the fundamentals of precision rifle marksmanship with a Two Part Course.
Part One will be conducted in the classroom where the instructor(s) will cover ballistic theory, the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship, and scope familiarization. Part One will conclude and students will shuttle to the 1,000 yard range to confirm their zero and bring the live-fire portion of the course.
Part Two takes place on the 1,000 yard range, which includes steel targets set at 100 yard increments, and a covered and shaded concrete firing line. Here, the students will apply the skills learned in Part One during a live-fire application, including using a Milling reticle, proper application of primary shooting positions, and correcting for environmental factors.
The shooter will leave the course with a total of 10 hours of training and the confidence to accurately place rounds on target at extended distances. MRRA Instructor will contact each individual to conduct final coordination with complete details before the start of course.

“I was very satisfied with the class and facilities (what an incredibly beautiful ranch), it exceeded my expectations and honestly was a bargain for the price. Rob is patient, knowledgeable and was able to help me dial my rifle into exactly the range that I need to be shooting” -Richard R.
“I really had an enjoyable time at the range on Saturday. I had a good time and I really learned a lot. I really appreciate all the time and effort Mission Ridge and the instructors took to prepare the course and the range activities. Initially I was a little hesitant because I thought this would be a little more advanced for me at this time but the instructors and staff removed any doubt. They created a great learning environment and made me feel at ease. Everything went off without a hitch. I have taken courses with Rob before and I really learned a lot from him. It is always enjoyable to learn from his techniques and experiences. Very good and patient instructor. I was glad to have his time on this range day. This was my first time with Gerard as my spotter and I learned a lot from him as well. He was very knowledgeable and willing to pass on all the technique I needed for a successful engagement at 1000 yards. I really liked that he took the time and allowed me to use both my rifles. Good to know that I was able to get both rifles to 1k. All the instructors on the range that day were a pleasure to work with and the presented themselves well.” -Steve B.
“I took the long range precision rifle course. Ran by Rob Mills. First time shooting Precision Rifle and I got all the way to 1000 yards. The course was very informative and practical. My instructor Ty, was full of knowledge and experience and guided me the whole time. All the instructors awesome, just a great time on a beautiful piece of property. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get into long range shooting or even experienced shooter looking to fine tune their ability. Thanks again Rob and Mission Ridge. Plus the range on NW military is an amazing facility, with a great selection of guns to purchase and rent.”
