The MRRA Long Range 1 course focuses on the fundamentals of precision rifle marksmanship with a Two Part Course. Part One will be in the classroom where the instructor(s) will cover ballistic theory, the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship, and scope familiarization. Part One will conclude with a range session where the student will confirm the zero on their rifle and perform a tall-target scope tracking test. Part Two of the course will be conducted at MRRA’s off-site training location featuring a 1,000 yard range, steel targets, and a covered and shaded concrete firing line. Here the students will apply the skills learned in Part One during live-fire including, using a Mil-Dot 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.
