In the announcement, LUCID Optics said:

LUCID’s expert guest instructor will be pro-shooter and Master Sergeant Jim Gilliland, a recently retired Army veteran with an extensive list of both military and civilian accomplishments. Gilliland’s impressive experience during his Army career and as a civilian trainer and professional consultant give him a unique edge and valuable perspective as an instructor. The expertise Gilliland brings combined with the beautiful property and cutting-edge range facility will offer shooting enthusiasts a dream opportunity.

The clinic will be divided into two sections including classroom time and range time. During the in-class portion, Gilliland will give a presentation covering the following topics: course introduction, equipment selection, rifle maintenance, precision shooting mechanics, ballistic basics, environmental basics, quality spotting and understanding optical units of measure. Afterwards, attendees will put their new knowledge into practice at the range with exclusive on-site training from Gilliland. Topics for range time will include a safety brief, proper zeroing, scope manipulation, cold bore/grouping drills and shooting drills. The range time will conclude with a competitive performance test among the shooters.

Gilliland is a master of long range shooting. We hit him up a few months ago for a rundown of one of the newest calibers on the market. Check out the video below, as Gilliland walks us through the background of Federal’s 224 Valkyrie.
