Day at the Shooting Range with Former Navy SEALs


  • Three-hour private shooting experience with former Navy SEALs for a group of four people.
  • 1:1 instructor-to-student ratio.
  • All ammo and access to weapons during the lesson.
  • Instruction on how to safely operate combat weapons used in the Teams, including pistols, combat rifles, and sniper rifles, and training in techniques such as shooting and moving, tactical movement, barricade shooting and combat shooting.
  • Drinks and snacks.


Spend a day at the shooting range with highly trained former SEALs including Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) Third Phase instructors and snipers. With a 1:1 instructor-to-student ratio, a select group of former SEALs will educate you on the techniques and principles used by elite special operations forces as you learn how to shoot pistols, combat rifles and sniper rifles.

Led by Darren Hicks, former SEAL sniper and third phase BUD/S instructor, and Drew Patrick, former SEAL, accomplished combat shooter and FBI firearms instructor, you will learn the principles of tactical movement, barricade shooting, shooting steel and combat shooting from experts who have put these techniques into practice during live action. The day will be purely focused on shooting and weapons training – you won’t have to worry about pushups, pull-ups or crawling through mud.

After the lesson, wind down with drinks and snacks with your instructors, who will be able to answer any questions you may have as they share their personal experiences with the SEAL teams and the Navy SEAL Foundation.

Conveniently located at the Richmond Rod & Gun Club in Richmond, California, (30 minutes from San Francisco, an hour from Silicon Valley) the range is easily accessible. You can work until lunch, head over to the range with friends or clients for a few hours, and be back home for dinner.

No previous shooting experience is required. This day would be perfect for both beginners and more experienced shooters. All are welcome!
