Urban Rifle April 19

Course Description

So you bought a rifle. Now what? A rifle without an owner who can correctly drive it is worthless. Before you load it with unnecessary accessories or options learn what you need and what you don’t through experience. Logic is the foundation of the school and Knowledge is its’ tenet. Created in 1983 this course is still the one most copied but not duplicated by other institutions. Urban rifle is the cornerstone of the personal defensive doctrine of this school and has been since the schools inception. Very simply this is the way to defend yourself with a rifle in what most people would consider handgun distance. Generally for magazine fed iron sighted rifles but other rifle types accepted. Low powered or dot type optics permitted but it is recommended that backup iron sights be available somewhere on the rifle. Nominal 900 rounds of ammunition. $1080

All Tuitions for Courses and Tutorials are to be paid in full at the time of registration. Please be sure of the class you want. There are NO REFUNDS and NO TRANSFERS. 
Here are some words from Clint about Urban Rifle and video.

    What a great time I had. I could have set there and listen to Clint talk all day and learn as much as I did shooting. Great staff and great NEW Presidente.
    Best facilities I have ever shot over. I have already booked another training and going back in 9 days.
    Thank You

    I’ve wanted to take this class for about the last 3 years, so going into this class I had very high expectations… With that said, Clint and the Thunder Ranch staff TOTALLY blew my expectations! They were incredibly hands on and knowledgeable! Urban Rifle was centered around the use of an AR-15 carbine at ranges of 7-100 yards, with multiple target engagements, use of cover, reloads, and working with teammates. Clint is hilarious as well at the same time which makes learning easy for me! Everything taught was precise and on point! Taking one or multiple Thunder Ranch classes will definitely provide you with gunfighting and lifesaving skills! I”ll be seeing you guys next year and every year to follow! Thanks again Clint, Heidi and TR Staff! – Josh Costa

    What a fantastic course! I’ve taken a couple of TR classes (Defensive Handgun and Long Range AR) but was always trying to find time to take Thunder Ranch’s “flagship” course, Urban Rifle. It was well-planned down to the smallest details, with a well-thought out checklist reminding the student what to bring and what not to bring. The first day started with a classic Clint Smith 3 hour lecture on theory, followed by zeroing our rifles then shooting from 25, 50 and 100 yards prone and kneeling. The second day we added the barricades and team activities. We were privileged to shoot in the Terminator, TR’s state of the art shooting house. The final day we continued challenging shooting positions and also shot in the woods at the Adam Brown Memorial Range. Clint, Heidi and the staff were gracious and always helpful. Safety was emphasized heavily and repeatedly throughout the course. The emphasis of the three day class was to teach us to fight safely and effectively with a Stoner rifle, and in my humble opinion, they knocked it out of the park. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone with an open mind who wants to learn more about shooting the AR and hitting the target.

    Everything about Thunder Ranch was world class. Urban Rifle was 3 days of pure fun. The instruction was excellent, the facility was top notch and the Smiths are two of the finest people I have ever met. I highly recommend this course, wether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran.

    Excellent course. All staff are expert and safe. It is a course for beginner and veteran alike. You can’t help but learn. I will take another course from Thunder Ranch, as soon as time allows.

    Great course as always. Must have if you own a rifle. Any rifle you take was welcomed. Be advised there is no Walmart or similar, just dollar general heh. Also test the ammo before you go. Had a great deal of trouble with the 40gr ammo frangible, seemed low powered. Worked in other guns just not our 3 (62gr and 55gr worked great before we left home). Be prepared for the weather. Again great course, worth the money.

    I attended Thunder Ranch UR about two and a half weeks ago and it exceeded all of my expectations to say the least. The owners, staff and program were accommodating, friendly, thorough, informative, honest and most importantly real world. No fluff from Clint, Heidi and staff. I dare you to find a more complete program, breathtaking location and world class facility any where ?!
    I have followed Clint for years online and taken his online courses. So it was kind of big deal to me to finally meet him. It was nice to know what I imagined him to be was accurate and true. Clint and Heidi are classy people with full open hearts.
    The smiths and their staff struck such a cord in me personally that I have changed most of my training schedule to TR for 2018.
    So in closing, get out there and make some empty brass with these folks!

    Cheers guys, see ya on the mountain soon!!
