Guidance Steel Target Shooting is excited to present a new series of multi-day action shooting retreats for Guidance Shooting Club members and invited guests held in the foothills of Yosemite on a private 120 acre ranch! These retreat will include all firearms and ammo required for each session, meals and snacks each day, a bunk house for sleeping or a tent site for those who prefer to camp, and a visit to a private Wild West action shooting range! Each session will be taught by Reilly Bodycomb.
There is no skill requirement for these retreats, however all students must be legally allowed to possess a firearm in the USA. All ammunition and firearms are provided. If you have any questions about the retreat, please email email@example.com for more information.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
This is a crucial training session where participants will learn the fundamentals of marksmanship and firearms safety. We will then practice, grip, sight picture, trigger pull, drawing from a holster, speed reloading, and safely moving between shooting positions, all while using unloaded firearms.
LEVER ACTION RIFLE
Retreat guests will first review the principles of marksmanship and firearms safety. After that we will take a deep dive on the effective use of lever-action rifles. Attendees will then get to shoot a Henry Golden Boy, or their own personal lever rifle. They will also get the opportunity to handle a Winchester model 1873 and a Marlin model 1895.
BOLT ACTION RIFLE
After being introduced to the basics of ballistic physics and long-range marksmanship, students will learn the functionality of a Savage MKII bolt action rifle fitted with G.I. style aperture sights. With this new found knowledge, the guests will get to go on a beautiful hike throughout the property where small targets have been placed at various distances and angles providing a fun introduction to precision shooting.
In this session guests will learn everything from basic handling to speed reloads and fast transitions with a Browning 1911-22. Guidance Club Members will also get the opportunity to shoot an antique US Army issued Colt 1911 produced in 1917!
Participants will have the rare opportunity to work with an antique Winchester 1897 shotgun made in 1908! We will use this gun to hit both falling steel and aerial clay targets! Students may also use their own pump shotguns for this portion of the camp or side by side shotguns.
VINTAGE 3-GUN STAGE
In our final shooting session, students will get to test their skills in a timed action stage that requires use of three types of firearms used in the previous sessions. This stage will include multiple reloads, as well as engaging moving targets.
