What We Do
We focus on all things precision shooting, competition, backcountry hunting, and adventure so we can pass on our experiences to you; good, bad, and indifferent. This is our lifestyle.
Why You Should Trust Us
The name is Modern Day Sniper because we’re snipers at our core, but we’re also passionate mountain hunters because that’s where we feel at home. You can’t pack out what you can’t connect with.
Why We're Different
“Putting Mindfulness Behind The Rifle” means we’re here to teach you the full-meal-deal from A to Z, and that has to start with you and your approach to your goals. Setting your intentions is the most important part of a successful training plan. It’s not just about shooting a rifle.
FUNDAMENTALS OF MARKSMANSHIP
Success in precision shooting hinges on our ability to blend two very different sides of the human brain, and patterns of thinking. These two vastly different thought processes are the science of precision shooting, and the art of precision shooting. The art form is how we interact with our rifles, and how we interpret the environment we’re shooting in. Ultimately we’re looking for consistency, and the union of the mind and the body. Once you’ve established a baseline of competence with the fundamentals of marksmanship, you’ll move into understanding the science of the bullet in flight, and what tools you need to precisely place a bullet exactly where you want it, when you want it there.
CIRCLE OF COMPONENTS
Precision shooting is quite a bit more than what meets the eyes. Balancing the application of art and science, the components that go into the precision shooting system are critical pieces to the puzzle. Success in this world is measured by consistency with regard to the rifle, optic, and ammunition. Expanding on that a bit further we’ll discover that the shooter is the fourth and final component in the circle. The shooter is also the weakest link because we’re human beings.
Invest in yourself if you want to increase your abilities in long range shooting or hunting. The knowledge you will learn from the MDS Schoolhouse makes the perfect foundation to build good solid habits and obtain great results.

RIFLE SAFETY COURSE
“We want to give ALL shooters the necessary and up-to-date information that they need to keep themselves safe in any shooting environment they go to. We’re seeing a HUGE influx of new shooters into the community, and that’s awesome, but we need everyone on the same page when it comes to safety. All of us have a responsibility to practice safe firearms handling skills, these are life rules for those of us who live a lifestyle with firearms .”

Modern Day Sniper recommends these Stone Glacier purchases
Our partnership with Stone Glacier comes through a desire to produce the best possible product for our customers. Modern Day Sniper’s name is synonymous with snipers, but the parallels between mountain hunting and how snipers think and operate are undeniable. Planning a mountain hunt is in many ways the same way we plan missions, and surprisingly only 10% of our job as snipers involves shooting, maybe even less. As a mountain hunter myself, I noticed this on my first trip and I was instantly hooked. Snipers and mountain hunters alike can’t accomplish the task at hand without first getting where the opportunity for a chase happens. That’s the majority of the effort, and we need our best mind, body, spirit, and tools to get there. Willfully subjecting ourselves to the mountain and Mother Nature’s fury to live where the animals are isn’t for the faint of heart.
