Ares Armor Sniper I

This was a great course. I attended this course May 10-12 and can honestly say I left a better shooter than I was when I arrived. I already had a shooting background and had some long-range shooting experience before the course but I was amazed to discover some of the bad habits that I had accumulated over the years. Tyler, Ryan, and Chuck did a great job improving my technique and helping me strengthen my fundamental skills and knowledge as a shooter. "Perfect practice makes perfect" was their motto for the course and they made sure we practiced with that idea in mind. The class size was small, so the instructor-to-student ratio was very favorable. We each got a lot of one-on-one time so careful attention could be paid to the way we were shooting. It was a great atmosphere to learn in. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in getting into long-range shooting for the first time or for those like me who have been shooting for a while but want to improve their skills.
