I took Fireman's, Jason's, shooting class today. I have good news and bad news...
The good news is, I had a blast and was ringing steel all day.
The bad news is, y'all are in big trouble for the THF Shooting Competition in August!
All joking aside, if I had one word to describe today it would be "fun", I never thought I would shoot a target out to 800 yards. Even when Jason told me we would hit steel at 800 yards by lunch I doubted it. After walking it down range he was calling wind and I was ringing the plates.
If any of y'all have read previous reviews you know the drill, the class started at 8 am, Jason takes you through shooting form and scope alignment on a white board. Everything was very easy to understand, even though my brain wasn't really working yet, I picked up what he was saying. Then I got behind the rifle, zeroed at 100 and off we went.
It took 10 rounds, maybe less for me to hit 800 yards and I was kind of shocked. I was really set up for success. I put together a 6.5 Creedmoor on a Savage action and I asked Jason a lot of questions about what to get. He definitely steered me in the right direction with scope, caliber, handload, and stock recommendations.
The best part about the whole class is how passionate Jason is about shooting. He really enjoys shooting and teaching people how to reach out to long ranges. That attitude definitely rubs off in a positive way. I can honestly say it made me want to hit targets that much more because of how excited he was when I held steady and made a good shot. He also has tons of knowledge, which many of you know, and he is always happy to answer questions. He probably has a story to go along with the answer.
If you have any doubts about taking the class I can promise you won't regret taking it. I am a new shooter and I have looked around at rifle classes and I can say you will not find many classes in this price range and you definitely won't find a 1on1 class for this price. If you are an experienced shooter, go on out there and humble yourself because shooting those 1 moa targets is hard!
Only regret I have is not bringing more ammo!
This is a picture I took down the range, I should have taken more but I was having too much fun!
