Hello guys and gals, my name is Doug. I am pretty new to precision/long range shooting but I've caught the bug and I am starting to learn a lot. I recently took a precision rifle class with Maxordinate and had a blast. My plan for now is to improve my skills and shoot my first precision rifle match sometime in the future.

How was the max ordinate class? I’ve been thinking about going there. Worth the money, nice facility? Do you feel prepared for PRS now?

I really liked the class. I'm so new to this type of shooting that I really learned a lot. I will be going back to take another class from them so yea, I think it was worth the money. The facility was pretty cool. They have a big cabin that was available for the students to stay in and the range was pretty cool. They had targets ranging from 100 to 1570 yards. As for being prepared for PRS? I don't know. I've never been to any kind of match so I don't know what to expect. Personally I need to practice a bit more before I think I would attempt a match.

Okay, good to know. I’m in the LA area and my brother is in Vegas. We were thinking about going to one together, so it’s good to hear from someone that has already attended.

Where you at in LA. I’m in Seal Beach. Looking to put in some range time when I get back in town. I’m new to this too. Last long range stuff was in the 60’s but the targets shot back.

For those of you still interested in the Max Ordinate courses; Ive been to the advanced LEO course 2x. Its a phenomenal course and the range is exceptional. The lead instructor, Tyler Hughes, was a USMC Scout Sniper and is a great instructor with a wealth of knowledge. He's also a current PRS competitive shooter. As far as the location (San Bernardino hills near Apple Valley), it was awesome. As previously stated, theres a large cabin (think Mining camp) that the students have access to and most stay in. There are numerous firing lines ranging from less than 100 yards to over 1500 yards. Additionally, there are firing lines for high angle shooting, some ranges of 700-800 yards for the high angle stuff. I'm just guessing, but there are probably over 200 pieces of steel spread throughout the property, most hittable from multiple firing lines. There are also multiple vehicle you can shoot from, through, and into. As far as preparing you for PRS matches, there are several obstacles erected on the property to challenge your unconventional positional shooting; rooftops, tire stacks, ropes, chains, fencing, the infamous tank trap, etc.

In all, its been some of the best training my team and I have participated in and we hope to go back.
