Hunter Prep at Gunsite Academy (Page 3)

The famous firearm academy is perhaps best known as a training ground for pistol shooters. But beginners and experts can learn Jeff Cooper’s “Art of the Rifle.”

Many courses, like Hunter Prep, have no prerequisites. Others do; you must complete Precision Rifle 7, for instance, before taking Extreme Long Range Rifle. And many students do exactly that, because the place and the people are infectious. Shooters return here year after year because they want to hone their technique before an expensive hunt, or because they simply want to learn new skills.

The tuition for Hunter Prep is $1,428. Room and board are not included, nor is airport pickup. You must fly into Phoenix, rent a car and drive a couple hours to Paulden, Ariz.

Many places of lodging are nearby. But if you go, I suggest you contact Ann Harrington at Little Thumb Butte Bed & Breakfast. Ann is a retired teacher, an NRA member and a Gunsite graduate, and she has special rates for Gunsite students. For $80 a night, you get a clean room only 8 miles from the Academy, a home-cooked dinner and a hot breakfast—an excellent deal. Contact her at 928-636-4413, or check out her website.
