Introducing the

Are YOU interested in learning Long Range Shooting?

Wanna know the best-kept-secret out there?
The range to the target is just a number, and it’s a number you can solve for.
Yep. Even you.

Long Range Shooting means something different to everyone, but at the end of the day hitting targets with intention at great distances isn’t that difficult to do, provided you’ve got a process.

Now, with that being said, the internet is filled with a whole lot of blow-hards and fluff. We get it, and that’s why we created the New Shooter Essentials series.

We wanted to give you an affordable, down n’ dirty yet comprehensive guide to get YOU out hitting targets way out there.

Would you be happy if I told you that…

You don’t have to spend a ton of money to hit targets at long range?

You probably don’t need a new rifle, or a new scope? That, really, all you need to do is understand how the equipment you already have works. 

With a tune-up on the fundamentals of marksmanship and an understanding of proper rifle fit you’re going to see a dramatic shift in the consistency you see from your rifle.

We like keeping things simple.

At Modern Day Sniper we’ve been teaching long range shooting for a cumulative total of 30+ years.

We know what works, and what doesn’t. We know how to communicate core concepts and we know what you need to know in order to be successful. 

What’s even better? We’ve figured out how to do all of the above, plus deliver it to you with the highest quality instruction – right over the internet.

The problem is straightforward

There’s a sea of information out there. So much, in fact, that it’s tough for a new shooter to find their way through the mess or know who to trust. 

We’ve got you. With over 30 years in the long range shooting field, both in the military as snipers and teachers, plus as hunters and long range competitive shooters, we’ve learned that the beauty lies in the process, not in the outcome. You’ve got to have a repeatable process you can rely on.

When you become familiar with the process we’ll teach you in this training, you’ll start to  love the process, and you’ll become less hung up on  the outcome, and that’s how we structured this New Shooter Essentials package.

Once you see the improvement, you’re going to be hooked.

We’re going to show you our process of bringing new shooters up to speed…


Our approach to teaching new shooters is a progression. We want you to understand the WHY behind the how, so we break things down into manageable chunks in the order that you’re going to be using them.

We broke this down into the most commonly asked questions that we get from people trying to get themselves into this sport.

At the end of this webinar series, you’re going to have a clear path forward and a process you can continue to rely on and refine for the rest of your life.

Sit at home and consume the bulk of the content and take notes. Then when you’re ready to go to the workbench or the range, you can take us with you as long as you have our application downloaded.

We’re 100% confident that you’re going to get a ton out of this mini-masterclass and you’ll be off to a great start in your precision rifle journey. 

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.

Can’t I get this all from YouTube myself?

You certainly could. We’ve learned from reading books and sourcing my own information.

But, the time and money we’ve invested into learning that way isn’t realistic for everyday folks wanting to get into this sport.

That’s pretty much WHY we’ve taken the time to distill all these learnings into this training.  

We’ve structured this content in an easy-to-follow format to save you loads of time and hassle and spare you the nightmare of sifting through the mountains of chaffe for the morsels of wheat.

We hope so.

A Final Note…


We’ll wrap this up by saying that long range shooting is one of the most mentally challenging disciplines in the shooting sports.

You’re mixing both sides of the brain and it can get complicated. Remember that the process is the secret. Love the process and the outcome will follow.

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,

-Caylen and Phil
