Modern rifle marksmanship covers a vast array of subjects and numerous sport shooting disciplines.  Learning, as we all know, is a life long endeavor and depending on your area of rifle marksmanship interest, there are a number of specialized skills that may be required to enhance your precision rifle shooting abilities.  Our Clinics & Advanced Skills Workshops offer shooters the opportunity to engage in specialized rifle marksmanship training, focused on a single topic.

Riflecraft topics are scheduled as open enrollment workshop offerings or personalized, custom one-on-one clinics with your equipment or ours!  Ashbury can provide specialized equipment such as laser range finders, night vision, ballistic computers, or complete precision rifle systems with premium optics, accessories and ammunition from .22LR to .50BMG.

At our private Central Virginia field firing facility, APO can organize and schedule individual or small group Riflecraft training clinics and workshops with staff and guest instructors to meet your general or specific needs. 

We have multiple field firing positions (e.g. Rawhide, Maverick, Bonanza, Chapparal) and a variety of static, reactive and moving targetry for pistol and precision rifle from 5 yards to 2,000 yards.  APO custom pistols, precision

rifles, ammunition and specialized rifle sports and tactical equipment can be rented by students to support a wide variety of training.  Lunch and refreshments are provided each day and a Certificate of Completion is awarded at the conclusion of shooting clinics and advanced skills workshops.
