Reviews from some of our Clients

It's hard to convey in writing how much I enjoyed shooting my new rifle yesterday! You all did a phenomenal job with every aspect of the build, and the end result absolutely exceeded all expectations! (which were set very high after shooting your course guns)

Zach Wilcox

James Eagleman is hands down the most knowledgeable shooter/teacher I could have asked for in this class.  I came into the Level 1 class having never made a shot over 350 yards and by the end of the course, I was shooting skeet at 1000 yards. The range guns are the sweetest shooting rifles I have ever laid my hands on.
The facility and staff are exceptional, the meals were out of this world.
All around Great Atmosphere
I will be doing the Level II someday (hopefully) soon
Labron Ellis

First-class instruction James is awesome and knows his stuff! The food and lodging is awesome! The info and skill set are in-depth but not so overwhelming that you don't have a clue what's going on. Can't wait to go back for the level two class.

Tyler Stepp

Absolutely the best experience ever. Great people, great facilities, and great food. James breaks this down for you to understand like I haven’t ever seen before. First time shooter or gun nut, it doesn’t matter. You will be shooting groups at distances you thought were only for military and professional shooters. I can’t say enough, can’t wait to do level 2!

Drew Ross

Barbour Creek Shooting Academy is a beautiful, well-maintained facility with a helpful knowledgeable staff. The range is very well thought out and staffed by humble, highly proficient instructors. This facility and these folks can show you how to correctly sling lead farther than you ever imagined possible

Joe Sheinutt

Some of the best guys ever. They will make sure you understand every peace of knowledge they give you. U will go as a student and leave like family

Joey Richardson

The quality of the instruction is beyond compare. James is by far the best shooting instructor I've ever had, and that includes my ten years in the Marines. By the end of the class, 800yds was boring, because it was just too easy. I highly recommend this course.

The accomodations are extremely comfortable and the entire crew at Barbour Creek makes you feel like family and to me they have become family. I can't wait to return for Level 2!

If all of that wasn't good enough, these guys truly support our nations Wounded Warriors. Thank you all for your support. Semper Fi!

Matt Amos

The most incredible experience! If you think you know your stuff about guns, ammo, optics and ballistics, come to Barbour Creek and find out the rest of the story.

I will definitely be coming back for Level 2 training

Jason Lovelady

Excellent range and great people. It is a first class facility with great instruction and

they can accommodate everyone. You can bring a rifle, let them help you set up one or buy one of the best long range rifles on the market today. Great accommodations and amenities if you require that also. I can't say enough about how great the people are and I highly recommend them. 5 Stars!

BillHicks

 

Darla, Emmaline, and I attended the Level I class and it was an outstanding experience. James did a great job providing the science behind the basics of a complete shooting system. The practical application of what James taught in class was a great learning experience and confidence builder as well with shots up to 1000 yards (Em hit the 3.5” clay at 1000 yds). We are looking forward to the Level II class. Mark and James have put together a great experience for both hunters and precision rifle enthusiasts. Highly recommend!

Richard Hartzog

Get a group of your friends that love to shoot and you will be amazed. Great instuctor, great range, with amazing rooms and hospitality.

Ron Schneider

Best School and Facility in the Country

Neil Jones

Awesome experience with the finest instructors in the long range shooting field. Mark and James made me feel comfortable, even though I was let's say not as good as I thought I was. You won't be disappointed. Its 1st class all the way around from accommodations to attitude. Thanks again guys for the experience. I will be back.

Eddie Dempsey

James is and excellent instructor with outstanding skills, abilities and experiences, that reinforce the learning environment. Barbour Creek provided the Highest caliber training, service, attitude and expectations for its students.
