North State shooting club notes that the North Carolina Adjutant
General of the North Carolina National Guard notes that civilian
participation in competitive shooting events helps to improve National
Defense and Public Safety:
“The AG wanted more community involvement with
the military so the club was designed to promote safe small arms skills,
marksmanship and good sportsmanship through competition between military
and civilian competitors.
Competitive shooting programs helps
improve National Defense and Public Safety.”
We are taking heed and practicing our sniper skills on our
home rifle range.
There are also custom rifle
dealers who can set you up with a proper rifle.
There are several types of long range rifle competitions:
- Conventional High-powered National Match (prone, seated,
- Conventional High-powered Prone
class" and the tactical match "sling" competitions.
A good sniper instructor (ex-CIA, Secret Service, etc) costs between
$600-800 per day, and you can expect to spend $20,000-$50,000 on
coaching to get competitive.
