Gunwerks is all about the perfect shot. We train to hunt, and success is the only outcome worthy of pursuit. Everything comes down to preparation. Our advanced equipment simplifies most of the difficult aspects of long-range shooting and requires a modern approach to training and curriculum. With Gunwerks equipment and training, our students achieve more capability in less time than any other training in the world.
We believe in a “building blocks" approach to training where each course builds upon the previous. Our Foundation, Development and Application Level courses (Level 1, 2 and 3) are broad based and will turn you into a well-rounded long range shooter and hunter.
In our Level 1 and Level 2 courses, we provide suppressed Magnus rifles in 6.5 Creedmoor and match grade ammunition. This is the perfect training platform with good long range ballistics and minimal recoil. In our Level 3 courses, we encourage you to bring your own rifle and ammunition to develop skill and confidence with your own rifle system.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
In our 2-day Foundation Course, we focus on building your skills and knowledge base. You will learn about the long range shooting system, the components, and the setup needed to be successful at long range. If you are a novice shooter you will learn the basic foundations from which to build on. If you are an experienced shooter we guarantee you will pick up valuable knowledge and techniques to improve your capability. You will learn how to utilize a ballistic program, how to “true” the program to your live fire results, and the basics of compensating for wind. In addition we provide an overview of the Gunwerks and Revic product lines to help you select the products which best suit your needs and hunting style.
In the spirit of progression, our 2-day Development Course builds on the Foundation you learned. You will learn the more technical aspects of long range shooting such as spin drift, temperature, altitude, and coriolis effect. You will learn the science behind the ballistics, how to range effectively and accurately, and how to read wind. You will learn the science behind a “cold bore shot”, which for a hunter is really the only shot that matters. You will learn how to build stable long range shooting positions in the field, utilizing your hunting gear and what nature provides. A large part of being an effective hunter is learning to perform under stress and pressure in the moment of truth. We will introduce you to stress inoculation drills to help you prepare for those moments when all your dreams, the money you have spent, the time preparing, and the once in a lifetime tag all come down to one moment and one perfect shot.
This 2-day course is designed for mountain hunters. Mountainous terrain is unique in that shots are often taken at an angle, and the mountainous terrain makes wind very tricky. This is an “owners” class, meaning we encourage you to bring your own rifle and ammunition. Rental rifles are always available if you prefer. You will learn how to calculate for inclination, read wind in an environment where there is rarely mirage, build shooting positions, and put it all together in scenario-based field situations. We believe in using technology, however we also realize that batteries die and cold fingers and gloves are not compatible with touch screens. We don’t want one dead battery to ruin a hunt, so we believe you should always have some old school backup techniques to function without a wind meter, a ballistic program, or a laser rangefinder. In this class we teach you these back-up techniques.
