Steyr Arms Training Academy, based in Alabama, announced new class dates as well as a new course to finish out the 2018 training season.
In addition to the SPR-I practical rifle class, the academy will also offer a SPR-II extended-range rifle course come Fall. The SPR-II class will push students to extend their range, engaging target out to 1,200-yards. In addition to advanced practical skills and ballistics, students will also learn how to read wind so they can test their long range limits. The SPR-II class will only be offered once this year with SPR-I completion a prerequisite to sign up. The SPR-II course is scheduled for Sept. 20-22.
The course will be taught by Steyr Arms Training Academy Director Eduardo Abril de Fontcuberta. Hailing from Spain, Abril de Fontcuberta is a world champion long-range competitor with extensive military and law enforcement training.
Each of the SPR-I and SPR-II courses will be limited to a three-day course with a maximum of seven students. Steyr Arms has scheduled its SPR-I courses for the following dates:
SPR-I: July 12-14
SPR-I: Aug. 26-28
SPR-I: Oct. 25-27
SPR-I: Nov. 15-17
SPR-I: Dec. 13-15
