“The success of the first NRA Outdoors Long Range Hunting/Shooting School was a result of the combination of our excellent instructors; our partners Weatherby, Swarovski and Federal Premium Ammunition, Caldwell Shooting Supplies as well as the first-class facilities at the Queen Mountain Ranch that made this class unlike anything else in the industry and a must for any serious western big-game hunter and shooter,” said NRA Outdoors President Greg Ray. “We’re excited to bring this class back to the same location next year and to give more NRA members the chance to learn from some of the best.”

“I enjoy being around likeminded NRA members,” said 2013 attendee Ray Shulund, of Spokane, Washington. “I definitely improved my confidence in long-range shooting and hunting skills. The experience was one to be put in the books.”

Meet the Instructor

Justin Richins of R&K Hunting Company has been a successful professional big game guide and licensed outfitter for many years. He guided his first successful client at the early age of 13 in his home state of Utah. Since that time his passion for big game hunting has grown almost as fast as his love for long range precision shooting. He has many long range harvests under his belt and has successfully coached many clients on one shot kills at extended ranges from 500-1000+ yards. He has become one of the top guides in the outfitting industry for his knowledgeable skill-set in dial-in and setup for long range hunting weapon systems. Justin understands the many different aspects that can affect a bullet’s flight path from the ground up. In 2007 he acquired his first machining lathe and built rifles for himself along with a 7 stall 1600 yard shooting range that has taken his skill set to the next level. We Make your Best Better!

  • I would like to get information about becoming a NRA Long range shooting Instructor?? Where do i start??

    Thanks Deputy Eroh

  • I am interested in this learning program and anything in general that will help me be a better shooter

  • I’m ready to sign up. Have always studied ballistics and have done shooting on game to 600 yards(under still conditions) with excellent results. Can’t wait to learn from experts, because I am not, and want to improve. The wife was an Olympic archer and is also eager to give this program a try. She is a steady hand.

    • Rick,

      Not scheduled just yet, but we are working other classes start for 2014, including utilizing the Whittington Center in NM. We will keep you posted.

      Thank you.

  • I sent an email request for registration for my hubby. Please call me so I can take care of the deposit and registration process before you are sold out. My phone number is in the email.


  • Besides Remington, what is the best single shot bolt action rifle/optics combo for precision shooting at 1000yds?

    Thank you

  • Will there ever be a program for disabled people on fixed income like this. We like to hunt and shoot also when able. With todays ammo cost and availability most of us can’t afford the programs.

  • I am very interested in attending this shooting
    class but is there any age restrictions on this
    class. I will be 66 years old when this class
    starts and was a U. S. M. from 1966 thru 1969
    and in Nam 1967 & 1968 and I just wanted to
    know if I would be able to attend this class.
    Thank You very much for Your time.

  • i am wanting in, just curious, it’s not clear to me if optics and rifle are included in the package or if i need to bring my own. i have no problem either way.

    • We will have Weatherby rifles available along with Swarovski optics. You are welcome to bring your own set up that you shoot/hunt with as well.

  • Hi,
    I’m interested in going and would like to know if you could provide specific rifle/caliber/scope combinations that meet your specification of “Rifle with telescopic sight Capable of engagements out to 1000 yards”.


    • Because of the many options available we recommend that if you come to the course you try our set up with Weatherby and learn about other options as well and then we will help you with your decision based on what fits you best and what the end use of the firearm is for you. Hunting or more for range time. We sent you a direct email with contact information, we look forward to hearing back from you.
