• Bring your lunch – There is nothing around to eat for several miles, we will only have a 1 hour lunch break.
• Attire – The weather in this part of WV is all over the place. Dress appropriately.
• Reporting time – Be on time. If you are going to be late, have a flat tire, hit the snooze button too many times, etc., please call me directly at 703-916-
8411 and let me know so we don’t hold up the other students.


• Negligent Discharge – I have a zero-tolerance rule for this. One time and you’re gone
• Flagging other students – If deemed egregious, you will be dismissed.
• Becoming a good shooter – It’s muscle motor memory! It takes more reps on top of more reps. None of this comes easy it takes time and money. But, safety is #1!
• Preferably, I would not like for anyone to die on the range from a heart attack. Please let me know if you have any preexisting health conditions before arriving.
