Candice Horner taught sessions on Understanding Optics, which covered MOA, Mils, Variable power scopes, red dot sights, FFP vs. SFP, when and how to use which type of optic, as well, as Intro to Long Range Shooting. This session focused on marksmanship fundamentals, understanding units of measure used in shooting (MOA and Mils), estimating and adjusting for wind and other environmental factors, basic ballistics, and why ballistic coefficient matters to long range shooting.
