Introducing the

Attention Long Range Shooting Enthusiasts, Hunters, Professional Snipers, and Competitors.


There’s a saying in the competitive shooting world and that’s “buy as many points as you can afford.” Translate that to the hunting world, and you’re buying as much forgiveness as you can afford. That can help…to a point. But there’s no substitution for actually knowing how to shoot your rifle.

There’s no secret sauce out there. The human interaction with the rifle is the weakest link, and it’s the link that requires the most amount of energy and effort to solidify.

Don’t be a $10 shooter with a $10,000 rifle.

I can promise you…

By following our proven methodology of training shooters you’ll see a MASSIVE improvement in your ability to interact with your rifle, have consistency shooting your rifle, and your ability to hit more targets with intention, not luck or chance. 

There is no better guide to the fundamentals of marksmanship available today. There isn’t an online training program out there today that’s going to be better organized and structured than what we’ve put together for you with the Fundamentals of Marksmanship.

When we decided to build out our online training program…

We wanted to do it in a way that allowed people to follow a progression that followed our training methodology. We like to structure our training with bite-sized chunks of information laid out in a logical progression that ultimately builds layers of skills. 

We found that looking into other training programs showed a lot of fluff and one-trick-pony ideas, or the program was far too basic and lacked the depth of understanding and meaning behind the concepts being communicated. 

We wanted to do it differently, and show you that there really isn’t any other place you’d want to look.

Broken down into 4 main parts:

Your Body Position

How to Aim the Rifle

How to Control the Trigger

The Followthrough and Recovery Process

We also created a special section of drills that you can do on the range or at home to reinforce these points too.

Ever found yourself saying anything like this?

  • It’s tough to get consistency out of my rifle unless I put it in a bench rest.”
  • “I thought I knew how to shoot, but then I went to a club match that a buddy talked me into…”
  • “I was on a solo hunt last season, I shot at a  buck but I had no spotter. I couldn’t see where, or if, I hit it. I ended up losing that deer.”
  • “When I get under the timer, I completely forget what order I need to do things and I get flustered, knowing that I’m making bad shots but I just don’t know how to fix it.”

You’re not alone. These are ALL major problems that the vast majority of the shooting community experiences. They’re just too embarrassed to talk about it. I hear the stories. You may know how to shoot on your time and terms, but you fall apart when it’s time to perform on demand.

Why? You haven’t trained enough on the process.

Or, maybe you’ve never looked at the fundamentals of marksmanship as a process.  

Shooting well, all of the time and under any circumstance, only comes once a shooter has solidified the process by which they interact with a rifle. That interaction involves supporting the rifle with your body, intentionally aiming it, pressing the trigger, then delivering a bullet into a specific target. 

If you want to do that on-demand and whenever you need to, the only way to do that is through a process. This masterclass is all about turning you into a master of that very process.

There’s a lot of pain involved in not shooting well

  • Pain in the mind because your ego is not happy. 

  • Pain in the feels because you know how much effort you put in to get where you’re at and it’s frustrating to not see the results. 

  • And some more pain in the pocketbook because shooting in the precision game isn’t cheap.

All the time I hear shooters say that they’re going to apply what they learned from the last match into the next one. Great intention, but an unrealistic expectation.

Or, after missing a shot on an animal “I’m never gonna make that mistake again.” The truth? You will probably make that same mistake again. 

Insert whatever example you like, but you see where I’m going. Without a map, your road could be a long one. Fundamentals of Marksmanship is that map.

Easy Access.
Wherever You Are.

The best part about this program is that you can practice literally everything in it while in your living room, behind your rifle. 

We’re in this program to develop a process, and then solidify it with repetition. On your time. 

Only got ten or fifteen minutes on any given day for practice? No worries. 

If you’re ready to go to the range for live-fire, as long as you’ve got service you can have us up on your device through our app.

With just 15 focused minutes of practice a day…

We know that everyone has different amounts of time available to dedicate to honing their skills, so it’s tough to give exact numbers here, but simply put, you’re going to get a TON out of this class if you put the work in. 

After going through this training and practicing dry in your home for just 15 minutes a day, we can guarantee that you’ll see results on paper when you go to the range next.

Ever experienced “flow state”?

It’s that feeling of doing something you’re really good at. And the effortlessness while you watch it all just come together in front of your eyes. 

That’s what we want when we’re shooting a rifle. And that’s exactly what’s possible out of your participation in Fundamentals of Marksmanship.


Settling into a position, rifle pointed at your target, your cheek settles and you see your sight picture.

The target is there, you take a breath, watch your reticle rise right into the target and settle. The wall of the trigger is crisp, you tell yourself it’s time and the icicle snaps.

A little shove comes, but instantly you see the target again, just in time for the bullet to splash in the center. 

It can be that easy. We’re going to help you get there.

But Don’t Take Our Word For It.

“If you want to make the best investment to increase your abilities in long range shooting or hunting, the knowledge you will learn from Modern Day Sniper’s courses makes the perfect foundation to build good, solid habits; and obtain great results.”

Patrick Vance, USAF Combat Veteran

“This is a great course. I learned a lot as far as instructing and shooting as well. I learned more in the first two days of this course than I learned in any of the three sniper schools I have taken combined. The instructor is very knowledgeable. Mr. Wojcik was good at giving instruction on not just his thoughts, but with what he had experience doing.”

Officer John Coleman

“THIS WAS WELL WORTH IT. Ok, I admit, I was skeptical of paying $397 for an online course in the basics. But this is super complete information, top notch presentation. And actually professional videography! Excellent printable materials. They didn’t cut any corners. Well done!”

Jeff Shaffer

“Loved the Fundementals of Marksmanship class. Being pretty much self-taught it was really great to see how to fix what I have been doing wrong all these years. Coming from a classic hunting background and being taught by hunters that only pull there guns out once a year I have relied a lot on my own trial and error.”

Much like our other Masterclasses, this course isn’t just about pulling the trigger. We take a holistic approach to marksmanship—covering not only the essential shooting techniques and body positions, but also the mindset, mental resilience, and equipment that make a complete marksman.

You can’t hit the shots you don’t take, and you won’t optimize the shots you do take if you’re not grounded in the fundamentals. Stop wrestling with your rifle and start making each shot a confident, calculated decision.

We’re rooting for you and can’t wait to welcome you inside the course to begin your journey toward mastering the art of shooting.

Keep Your Face On The Gun,
