Performance Out Yonder With JBS Training Group

This is a magnified optic curriculum. This course is designed with the everyday rifleman in mind. Practical application of the rifle at true rifle distances is something that is seldom seen in today’s “dynamic” or “tactical” training world. What does practical mean? To me it means experience gained from actual use. Theory has no place here. The experience of actually using the tool we have chosen is often far different than going off of the ideas that are so often perpetuated. These ideas that sound great tend to actually fall short in the true application of those ideas. This is the course for understanding the guns capability, the shooters capability, and how to apply this knowledge at maximum speed in any natural environment. This course is for the magnified optic user. That is the magnified dot or the low power scope. We will be shooting from 5 yds out to at least 300 yds (400 yards at the FARM Training Center!). What are you capable of? What is your rifle capable of? Let’s find out!!

* This is NOT a beginners course. You should understand and be able to apply the firearm life safety rules at all times. A safety/medical brief will be given at the start of class. If you fail to safely manipulate your firearm in any way, you will be disarmed and a refund will NOT be issued. *

Instructor Bio

Mark has been shooting for over 15 years. What started with hunting in the woods of SC as a youth quickly developed into a passion. In 2011, he began to take his shooting seriously after discovering how much he didn’t know after attending his first professional training course. Since then, Mark has amassed over 1000 hours of professional training from some of the best instructors in the business.Capture.JPG

Mark has worked to build relevant, up-to-date, and professional training programs for military, civilian, and law-enforcement clients in topics ranging from performance shooting, church safety and security planning, and Night Observation Device (NODs) integration and techniques.

Many esteemed members of the Law Enforcement community have attended JBS Training Group classes, including members of the 19th SF Group, Homeland Security, NYPD, US Marshals, FBI and more.

When not teaching, he also competes in shooting skills matches to include 2-gun/USPSA, he is the head of the firearms training division of his church safety-team, and he helps local farmers thin their nuisance animal populations by night hunting.

When not on the busy with his work, you will probably find him in his yard working on another home project for his wife of 10 years, Brittany, and if not, his two kids are sure to find something for him to do with them.

  • At least 3 magazines for the weapon

* We are aware of ammo shortages and pricing. We understand. We believe good meaningful reps, knowledge, and understanding are more valuable than mindlessly pulling a trigger. Therefore, for all JBS classes, we have created the curriculum so that you may bring less than the suggested amount and get all of the same value, minus more live fire reps. You can get through any of our courses with 500 rounds. If you are fortunate enough to have more than that available, bring it. You'll want to shoot it. But if you're struggling, 500 is all you'll need to have an outstanding time.

* Please note that the range has no facilities / running water etc (they do have porta potties), so please bring plenty of water and anything else you might need throughout the days.
