Meet the Instructor

Owner/operator and Instructor Mark Peterson has over 25 years’ experience in shooting. Growing up as a kid in Wisconsin and Minnesota, he spent a lot of time in the woods hunting. In his mid-teens he began to study ballistics, and how different caliber were effective at different ranges. Mark’s initial interest became his passion and from there shooting became a regular habit. Spending time hunting with others and seeing shots being missed by others, he wondered if he could help them improve upon their skills. Many years of range time helping others privately build fundamentals and understanding what it takes to make an accurate long-range shot prompted him to start Point of Impact LLC. Point of Impact now trains and instructs individuals all around the country and the world.   Mark’s retail store, River N Ridge Outdoors makes a great compliment to this by offering customers a full experience from purchase to accurate shot.
