Our course value is not in the individual instructor, or the furthest target you can hit. We’ve engineered a progressive learning experience that teaches unique concepts as building blocks for understanding and applying the fundamentals of long range shooting. We teach cutting edge process for long range civilian marksmen. We are not training techniques tailored for Infantry or combat.
When you immerse yourself in our curriculum, you will be exposed to the only the best methodologies, processes, techniques and equipment. We’ve led the long range revolution with pioneered products like the Ballistic Turret and the G7 BR2 ballistic rangefinder. Our course is no different, we have pioneered new ways to learn and apply the science of long range shooting.
Level 1 is not just a beginners course. L1 content is foundational knowledge necessary for mastery of the shooting discipline. Whether you are studying Long Range Shooting, Reloading, or Long Range Hunting Preparation, when you complete a Level 1 course you will have the skills and techniques required to progress.Register
Level 2 courses are designed to build on the foundation established in Level 1. The topics are advanced. Generally, you will leave a Level 2 course with a high degree of technical capability. Level 2 courses combine equal parts of classroom and practical training. Completion of Level 2 signifies a significant step in your progression in mastery of discipline.Register
Level 3 courses are designed around in situ training scenarios packaged to enhance the training experience. In Level 3 we try to avoid the classroom and perform in-field debriefing and instruction. L3 classes will require completion of prerequisite course material.Register
The Shooting Platform. Stable and adjustable benches combined with correct shooting equipment are the foundation for precision and a fundamental for accuracy.
The Target Range. Our known distance range has targets out to 1400 yards. Big AR500 targets are expensive, but they mark strikes that help a shooter learn.
The Training Room. Comfortable. Convenient. A classroom close enough to the range you can be shooting in a couple minutes.

We brought him on as a full time instructor because he wasn’t just an operator, he has a very impressive resume of training and managing training courses and curriculum. His capabilities as an instructor are derived from his first hand knowledge and experience relating to weapons, ammunition, ballistics, shooting techniques, training exercises and operations. He has a passion for developing and mentoring our students as they progress through our training curriculum.

He’s the guy that likes to keep things simple, so he can really repackage technical content in understandable terms.
I was intrigued by but slightly hesitant about the concept of long range hunting and decided to attend the Level 1 Course and familiarize myself with the techniques and equipment Gunwerks has become well known for. First and foremost, the educational material itself is worth every penny. But when we hit the range and I started nailing the 600 yard bulls-eye within a few shots and the 840 yard target became a gimme within less than an hour of putting their techniques and equipment to work I can officially say I was convinced. This course is absolutely necessary for anyone looking to hone their bench shooting techniques and navigate the murky waters of long range optics and firearms. These guys are as legit as they come!

Knowledge is Power!
The information that was passed on to me by the Gunwerks staff, during the 2 day course has been invaluable. I have used a piece of information on each one of my big game hunts this fall. Whether it was adjusting parallax, doping the wind, loading the bi-pods or something as simple as mounting the rifle in the shoulder pocket. Having the knowledge enabled me to make the shot!
I've been a Gunwerks customer for a long time and own several rifles. The customer service is excellent! The Long Range University Curriculum presents a very technical step by step process to develop your knowledge and skill for long range shooting. The Level 3 course is perfect for the advanced shooter, or the hunter spending the big bucks on hunts with extreme mountain terrain.
