Tactical Rifle Class I (2 Days)

Prerequisite: You must have previous training or competition experience (IDPA, USPSA, 2-Gun or 3-Gun). It would be ideal to have an 8-hour carbine course.

Description: This 2-day class covers the basic tactical use of the carbine (AR Platform 5.56/.223). It begins with the basics, including fundamentals of marksmanship, equipment selection, safety, manipulations, reloads (tactical & speed), and malfunctions. Students will increase their proficiency in close to midrange firing, tactical engagement of targets, ballistics review, the use of cover and move into more advanced drills. Primary focus is raising the accuracy level and tactical handling of the carbine. Students will continue to improve their carbine handling skills while reinforcing the fundamentals of marksmanship. Timed drills will help the student learn the balance between speed and accuracy. Students will also learn self-diagnostic skills to continue development of their own personal performance.
