“It is said ‘to be a master at anything you must do it a minimum of 10,000 times.’ 
Now, you can do it 10,000 times wrong and be a master, still a student, or you
can learn the proper way to do something and become an educator of others. 
Now, while we believe you will always be a student, finding the best teachers
is always key.” 
– Travis Ishida

Foundation is an introductory course focused on creating the foundation of the individual’s long-range skills. Students will learn the fundamental techniques needed to successfully engage targets at long-range with precision. During the course, participants will develop an understanding of the Gunwerks Long Range System’s capabilities and an introduction into the basic fundamentals of marksmanship.


Development focuses more on the understanding of the “Why and How?” it all works. From the science of internal, external and terminal ballistics to a continuation of developing your skills as an individual shooter. Shooters will begin to learn the basics of retrieving their firing solution for both elevation and wind. Here we start to shooters out of their comfort zone to discuss and practice unorthodox positions that shooters will most likely see in the field.


Application brings everything full circle with the progression. Shooters are placed in real world shooting scenarios that they will most likely have already encountered (as a hunter) or in situations that other hunters may have found themselves in. Instructors will be there to guide shooters in the process of obtaining their firing solution but shooters will find themselves working alone just as they would in the field. We focus on hasty and deliberate observation techniques that aid in your target acquisition process. Here shooters will have the ability to learn about the capabilities of their personal long range system and individual shooting skills as well as equipment management.
