Marksmanship Training

Kyle Ranch Marksmanship Training Courses

We are different. This is a student driven, student goal oriented course. We do not expect nor teach you to fit our “set” class, rather we work with you to achieve your realistic goal(s).

This is not a rifle course where we are trying to teach our course to various levels of ability to numerous students. We focus on teaching you what you need and want to learn with your own personal instructor.

If you ever thought that it would be great to get your spouse or child into the shooting/hunting sports, but would really like them to get quality instruction to improve their level of ability, then we are what you are looking for.

All instruction is 1 instructor per 2 students.

Scheduling – go to http://www.kyleranch.com/calendar/ to see available dates and request the ones you would like. We do not set the class dates, you do.

Age – minimum age for courses is 12 years old. Any student under 18 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian take the course with them.

We do not loan or rent firearms, nor do we have ammunition available to purchase.

After successful completion of Basic Rife Course or Advanced Long Range Marksmanship Course you will receive a certificate for a 10% discount for an exotic animal, good for 1 year. All other normal fees will apply.  This is not available for the Basic Plus Hunt Course.
