Hit targets out to 1,000 yards at the SIG SAUER Academy long distance shooting range. This one-day course offers shooters the opportunity to test their skills at extreme ranges not normally found at most other shooting facilities.
Following a review of basic marksmanship skills, Academy instructors guide students through the challenges of successfully engaging steel and paper targets at 100 yards, 300 yards, 500 yards, 800 yards and 1,000 yards.
This is an advanced level class. The student needs to know and be able to demonstrate safe gun handling, weapon system familiarity, and foundational marksmanship skills. Students must have previously attended a formal precision rifle training course in order to enroll.
Students failing to meet and maintain our safety requirements and/or who cannot meet and immediately demonstrate the minimum skills required for the specific class may be removed from training. Please ensure you have read through the class description and fully understand our prerequisites before registering.
