Welcome to Colorado Precision Rifle, our goal is to provide the most cutting edge and highest quality products and instruction. As instructors and competitors we have fired and closely observed hundreds of thousands of rounds of precision rifle fire. We use this experience in our selection of products and pass this knowledge on to you. We only sell what we have tested, used, and believe in.
"Complete Training & Proven Equipment" - It's more than a slogan, or a catch phrase. It's the simplest description of our business we could think of! We want to emphasize two aspects of our business in this motto, the training we offer, and the equipment we sell.
Complete Training - You probably already know a dozen firearm instructors looking for your business... so what makes us different? We not only focus on customized training to your particular needs, but we only teach courses which we are experts on (primarily Long Range Precision Rifle). Additionally, we teach a "Complete" curriculum that encompasses the topic of interest. By starting with fundamentals and advancing to more complex topics, you will learn much more than the main topics advertised with a given course. Aside from the defined course topics, most of students enjoy chatting with us between sessions (or before or after the class) and learn from our experiences. See "Our Background" for more information on our experience.
Proven Equipment - Although our primary love of the business is Training, we have quickly realized that other shooters are always interested the equipment we use, and why we use it. This is why we opened up the retail sales side of our business; to allow our students, Mil/LEO, competitors, and fellow enthusiasts, to have a store that sells equipment that you can depend on. We carefully chose the word "Proven" to describe our equipment offering as we have tested and used nearly every product we sell. In some cases, these products have seen heavy military service, constant competition abuse, and loaner/demo use tested by some of our best testers (our students). We'd be happy to discuss your particular equipment needs and help you out (even if we don't sell what is best for you).
