About The Event
2-Day Precision Rimfire Courses
Thursday May 24th & Friday May 25th with our friend and Active Duty Army Ranger Sniper, BJ Underkofler.

The course layout is unique, as the $250 tuition pays for 8am - 5pm on day one. Beyond 5pm day one, and all of day two, attendance is optional and free. This allows for easier scheduling and better prioritization of the material, while still making substantial value available.

-How might this material translate to centerfire?
-Introduction of the advanced use of magnified optics
-Litz/Hodnett method of ranging/sizing

This may appear to be a dense course, but the blocks are small, and the outline is detailed. In reality it is not intended to be up-tempo despite efficient use of time.
I’ve trained with Todd Hodnett of Accuracy 1st at his world class facilities in the Texas panhandle, including UKD hits out to 1600m with 25+ mph winds. His material is outstanding. Prior to that I had the opportunity to learn to make shots at a mile with Desert Tech at their private training ranges in Utah.
That said, I’m still a civilian hobbyist. For this reason, two friends have graciously agreed to help me out a bit. They are able to provide oversight and integrity for this course via their extensive precision shooting backgrounds as an Army Ranger Sniper and Marine Scout Sniper. One will be in attendance for Day One, providing feedback and guidance as needed for all of us.
We have room for 18-20 MAX, and a realistic expectation of filling this class. FULL TUITION be required at least a two weeks in advance, and becomes non-refundable one week prior to class.
We’re putting this on primarily because it will be a hell of a lot of fun, but the intellectual gains hold much promise, especially with the incredible opportunity to work with such accomplished service members.
