The experience was beyond my expectations.

I wanted to send a note your way to personally thank you, Bob and Mike for what I think is an essential course for any long range shooter. From the instructional components to the range time in the mountain, the experience was beyond my expectations. Now as you know I occasionally hunt, but my handling of my rifle was just to be a responsible shooter, find my target, know my target and beyond, shoot straight and drop the animal. Then I would pass the rifle back to my husband and he did all the mechanics. I never even had to load my rifle, I never zeroed in a rifle, didn’t know a turret, what’s parallax, MOA, mils. Nothing. Never had to shoot an animal beyond 150 yards. And then I get talked into this course, me,  at the age of 53 when the brain cells are dying out quickly and CMS (can’t remember shit) is coming on strong. What was I thinking. But I'm not a quitter, although I came close this time. And then I'm presented with a Saber M700 for Mother’s Day, of course, lol. Purchased a Riton scope and boom, I’m ready! ????. SMH So now I’m months away from the shoot, I’ll get to know my rifle, of which NEVER happened. Fast forward I’m now three days before the course, I start planning my gear, bullets etc, All along the way I'm clearly thinking that this was a very bad idea. I am going to be ridiculous on the mountain. D-Day- Saturday morning, after not sleeping because failure was convincing me my reach is beyond my grasp, I struggled out of bed and headed over to class. There’s Mike, Bob and you, [...]

Today I got out to about 1,300 yards with a center hit on the steel – absolutely incredible!

Anthony, I wanted to send you a message to tell you how much I enjoyed the course and how well run it was in every aspect.  The instructors were fantastic (Bobby, Tom and Mike) and patient as they guided us all through the course and getting on steel today.  As with everything you do at GFH, it was both a lot of fun as well as safe! I can’t imagine how much coordination it took to pull this all together, From the classroom, to the food, the drive, dinner, the mountain, etc., it was exceptional, not to mention the poor guy is like a sherpa with all of the gear :). They spent a lot of time with me well before the class making certain I had the right equipment and knew how to use it.  He made sure I was comfortable with the gun and it made the class even more fun.  Before this class, I had never shot further than your 50 yard range and today I got out to about 1,300 yards with a center hit on the steel – absolutely incredible! My father-in-law was with me for the class and is 78 years old.  All the instructors made certain he was comfortable and had a blast as well.  I appreciate being able to spend time with him doing something like this – he said it was something you never think you’d get a chance to do during a lifetime and he truly enjoyed himself.  I am glad he enjoyed himself and we got to spend two great days together. I can’t thank you and the rest of the staff enough for the experience and great weekend!  Count me in for 1.5 [...]

Hitting that target that day was one of the greatest feelings you could imagine.

I just wanted to drop you , and your staff, a little note for all of your help during the Urban Long Range shooting class.  Before taking your class my only experience shooting a rifle was with an old 22 Remington bot action that i shot to probably no more than 200 yards. I took the class with a little apprehension . 1000 yards?  Was it even possible? But after taking the class , paying attention to what was being taught and putting it into practice at the range.  I was able to reach that lofty 1000 yards. Hitting that target that day was one of the greatest feelings you could imagine. But was it pure luck? Shortly after the class i decided that i just had to try it again. I searched all over the internet for a range that had a 1000 yard field. The closest range was in the middle of the state , I live in PA, 3 hours away.  so a 6 hour drive back and forth just to try and repeat what I had thought to be just pure luck shot. To me it seems like it was worth it. So a friend and i joined the Mifflin County Sportsmens Association in Lewistown Pa. Finally we were able to set a weekend to drive out to the range over the Labor Day holiday. Once we got to the range we had to hurry and set up the targets. Little did we know that actual shooting started started at 1:00 on Sunday because of church and we got there at 12:30. We had  to to hurry up and drive out to the 1000 yard burm, and set up our target, [...]
