George Harris, our rifle and pistol instructor, will be back at the ranch again in August.

George will be running an introduction to defensive pistol class on Friday, August 18. Maximum eight students. Repeat students from prior years are welcome.

The pistol class will cost $890 for the day. All ammunition, snacks, lunch, cocktails and conversation on the deck at the end of the day are included. You are encouraged to shoot your own pistol, but loaner guns will be available.

This year, in collaboration with the founders of Hammer Bullets, we are offering a class in precision rifle shooting with George Harris on Saturday, August 19, and a day developing custom ammunition and validating external ballistics for your rifle with Steve Davis and Brian Holtmeyer of Hammer Bullets on Sunday, August 20.

Stay in the Lodge for two or three nights with meals catered by our private chefs. Cost $390 per room per night plus $250 per day for catering. Wine, beer, cocktails, and conversation included.

The first day will be with George using our rifles and ammunition on our long-range rifle ranges shooting groups and ringing steel at ranges beyond your current comfort level from the bench and from improvised positions.

The second day, for up to four students, will be with the founders of Hammer bullets who will develop custom ammunition for your rifle and help you confirm the external ballistics with your own rifle or one of ours if you choose to purchase a Lazy Triple Creek custom rifle, out to 500 yards or beyond. You will leave with 100 rounds of custom hunting ammunition developed for your rifle plus the skills to use your rifle effectively and ethically at longer ranges.

$890 for the first day. $890 for the second day plus from $300 to $500 depending on the cartridge for the cost of the ammunition you will be taking home.

Sign up for one or both days. Maximum eight on the first day, maximum of four students with their own rifles on the second day.
