Throughout this course you will be going over the different equipment and setup possibilities for long range precision shooting.  This course is classroom only.

Will Thompson has been shooting precision rifles both professionally and as a competitor for over a decade. As a Reconnaissance Marine and Marine Corps Scout Sniper Will completed deployments in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
