    ALTUS Intro to Precision Rifle Course

    Posted by C. Anthony on May 19th 2019

    I traveled all the way from Orlando to take the Intro to PRS class, and it was easily one of the best things I've done in my adult life. Spenser was an excellent instructor, an absoulte wealth of knowledge and asset to any shooter. This experience was well worth the money spent. If you're on the fence, DO NOT HESITATE!

    Took the class with Spencer this past weekend. Spencer was an excellent instructor and very personable. His attention to detail is excellent along with the ability to explain the exercises clearly..He has a genuine desire to make you a better shooter and gets you excited about what you are accomplishing. I was able to increase my skills well beyond my expectations. I literally have never shot that good in my life as did this past weekend.if you want to increase your skills do yourself a favor and take this class.

    Great Course, Great Instructors

    The quality of instruction is unsurpassed. I am elderly and disabled, but with the fantastic quality of the instructors, I was able to improve my skills by at least 30%. There was so much information to absorb that I plan to take this course again before I move on to the advanced level course.

    Wonderful Class

    Posted by Timothy Mallory on May 20th 2018

    The class I attended was led by Terry Cross and Jon Farr. The entire class far exceeded my expectations. These gentlemen brought a wealth of information and experience, and presented it in a format that was both challenging and easy to understand. I highly recommend both the class and these instructors for anyone wanting to learn or improve at longer range precision shooting.

    Ryan and Spencer were awesome, extremely knowledgeable and helpful men. In 16 hours of training, I went from being a 100yd shooter to 900+.

    Awesome Course

    Posted by Jeffrey Abraham on Aug 8th 2017

    The course was a great course that really laid the foundation for long range shooting. Both Ryan and Matty were great in the classroom and on the range. They made the concepts very easy to understand and were very adaptable to the wide range of students in the class. I would highly recommend this course for those that want to build their confidence on shooting longer ranges. After leaving the course I have no hesitation getting behind the rifle for shots of 1,000 yards and beyond. I will no doubt be back to take more courses from both Ryan and Matty. Thanks for a great course.

    Very Solid Course

    Posted by Lindy Bailey on Aug 4th 2017

    Long time NRA High Power and Long Range guy who thought I might skip this Intro and go to the Advanced course first. Wrong.... Many, many new concepts that added significantly to my rifle skills, especially for random target sizes and distances. Ryan and Matty were very patient and professional and fun to boot. Highly recommend this course to anyone serious about riflery, whether it's hunting, competitions or just for the pleasure of shooting mid to long range with confidence.
