Building upon the success of its 2015 Long Range School program, NRA Outdoors recently announced that it will be offering even more courses in 2016. On top of that, they announced a "Practical Hunting Rifleman School," this time on the east coast. Spots in each course have been selling like hotcakes, and the class sports partners like Weatherby, Huskimaw, Swarovski, Hornady Ammunition and Caldwell Shooting Supplies. American Hunter wanted to get an inside look at one of the classes, and so Web Managing Editor Shawn Skipper recently journeyed to Peacemaker National Training Center in Glengary, West Virginia to get a refresher in practical riflecraft. The ensuing gallery offers a look at just what our friends at NRA Outdoors are offering. Be sure to keep an eye out for more coverage in our print edition in the coming months.
