Took a four day "Basic long range precision rifle class this past week at Badlands Tactical in Grandfield Oklahoma. I can't say enough about the professionalism of the staff. Extremely knowledgeable, and ready and welling to go the extra mile to help their students anyway they can. Qualified out to 600 yards and shot out to 1,000 yards. If you are in the SW Oklahoma or North Texas area I highly recommend that you check them out, You won't regret it!

If there was any water, your going to have orange stains on your stuff. If I was dry, your going to have orange dust everywhere.

Good choice, I’ve done Basic, Level 1, and Urban there and will be back to there again this fall.

Lol Bobby is great to deal with and lots of knowledge. Don’t show up with a kestrel or any other computer. He ain’t gonna let you cheat.

I’ve not taken Level 2 yet, so I cannot compare. However Urban was geared towards closer range stuff. I think we still shot to at least 700, most of us to 1k, but you also do more with observations and Urban hides.

At this point, I’m planning on Level 2 this fall.

There is very little that they thrash in LE classes that the won’t teach in a civ class. When I took Advanced Phase 1 my shooting partner was a SWAT sniper for a larger city. I received the same instruction he did.

From reading the site...it seems the classes are 50% class room as opposed to range time. Is that true?

No, not really. Your first day you will spend a couple of hours in class and when you break for lunch you will head to the range. After that, you will spend the majority of the time on the range. For lack of a better way of stating it, the classes are belt to a “strict” schedule. There is some flexibility based on weather and student aptitude. What I mean is that during the summer they will try to get range time in earlier and hold the class room off for the afternoon. Similarly, if the students are progressing well they will extend range time or possibly extend class time if students as a whole are not grasping the fundamentals. Trust me when I say this, you will get more range time than you can imagine. Your knees, chest, shoulders, and elbows will be incredibly sore. When they talk about classroom time understand that it is not just sitting and listening to lectures. There is a lot of time spent at the compound working on alternate shooting positions, KIMS exercises, and dry firing. You’ll spend time doing the “penny drill” which is one of the single best exercises for trigger control you will encounter. Something new that they have started is talking about the 5 arenas of combat. They realize that if you choose to have firearms in your life then there is a chance that you may have to actually use it in defense. They try to prepare you for that. You don’t just have to deal with the threat, but also the physiological side of it, the legal side, the effect it has on your family, the effect it has on your community, and the possible media coverage. The instructors have been there and done that, you are getting real world knowledge. Everything is purposeful, thought out, and productive.

I guess I got a little long winded to get around to say this. The class you are taking will dictate the amount of classroom time you have. The more advanced classes with advanced topics the more class time you have but in no case will you feel shortchanged in range time.

You’ll have enough range time to burn however many rounds you bring.

Range times are the expensive days.

I took 1k for Basic and Level 1 a few years back, same deal 9 days and probably shot 800 if it.

You don’t need to question the schedule, as pointed out, they know what their doing and will adjust accordingly.
