    Question (rifle) long range shooting course/training

    hey guys

    I am looking for a place where I can go to practice (or take a course in) long range rifle shooting, I have been looking online but can't seem to find a place (since I don't have my own firearm)

    if you know of a place where I can take a course or at the very least can rent a rifle that can shoot to a distance (with precision) please let me know. I do know the fundamentals but would prefer experienced guidance (it saves a whole lot of time, energy and money)

    of course "long range" is relative, so i mean 500+, I never actually did it, so far only shot "accurately" to 100m, but hoping to reach much further than that. as a start i can go with 300-500m range as well

    location of range is not an issue

    thanks

    The guys from Tac Driver provide courses. PM DayLite here on the forum or have a look at the website and beam them a mail.

    Edit: the link to the relevant page

    If you are in the Jhb or Pta area then I would highly recommend Sean from LRSSA as per the link. Very practical course

    sa-shooter, thank you, will reach out to them

    Antlion and Mannic, thanks guys, but they were the first i reached out to (a month ago) got nothing from email, and when I messaged them on FB Sean said I needed to bring my own rifle(which I don't have)

    ... apparently I can't edit the post

    I will be backpacking (the hostel kind of backpacking not camping lol) in SA for up to 3 months and will be arriving on the 19th, will be moving around obviously and would love to go shooting, I am looking for both handgun and rifle, but the rifle is one one I had hard time researching
    (in egypt the handgun shooting is basically limited to static and the longest rifle range accessible to me is 50m, and both are costly!)
