Optional equipment:

Rifle with a mounted light and a sling.

200 rounds

Again, this is a more advanced course. Please if you don’t feel comfortable to move and shoot, or shoot in the dark please email me and I will give you a daytime training session for free or if you just want a beginner course please email me and we will work something out.

There will be moving this shoot as well as communication.

It will still be a standard format, coming while it’s still daylight , get some warmup reps in, get a good feeling for your equipment and adjust while it’s still daylight. We want your gear to be universal between day and night.

Again, your guest is your responsibility as well as making sure they have the correct gear to shoot with. If they don’t, they will be asked to leave unless we can figure something out. But I’m going to assume if they don’t have gear to shoot at nighttime then they aren’t at a level to be at a night shoot. I’m sorry but safety is my priority above all else.

Please email me or call/text directly with any questions or concerns and I will be happy to answer them.
