Today was the first day of the Precision Long Range class presented by Central Cascade Precision. This is a relatively new training organization located in Yakima, Washington. The man what does the training is the REAL DEAL. His name is Caylen Wojcik. Caylen was a former Marine Sniper with time on the ground in Iraq. He also was a Marine Scout Sniper Instructor and received the Purple Heart. He knows his stuff and more importantinghly, knows how to effectively teach it.
During my time in the military and law enforcement I attended a lot of training by smart folks and some not so smart. A lot of these guys are driven more by ego than teaching and in turn try to impress the fact that they are in charge or that its there way or the highway. Some jsut like to talk abvout how cool they are. You’ll get none of the from Caylen. He’s down to earth and creates an inviroment where you want to learn and more importantinly can learn.
Most of the stuff covered today was basic but I learned a great deal. Especially about shooting from the prone position. Antother thing I like about this coursre is that it is not taught on a range. We are out in the field on natural terrain.
Tomorrow we start at noon and will shoot until midnight using SUREFIRE lights and nightvision.
I know, I have a terrible job.
