COST: $695    Class size limited to 12

This course is designed to give students practical skills and knowledge in using their carbine rifles in a variety of defensive situations. Students should expect to receive a strong refresher in the area of Defensive Fundamentals and then quickly move on, pushing the boundaries of traditional flat range rifle training to cover areas often not addressed. The curriculum will take the shooter into the arena of dynamic performance shooting at a variety of distances from 0 (hands on) to 100 yards and also will involve work inside structures and vehicles. This is not a basic class and will require previous training in basic carbine safety, handling, operation and marksmanship.

Please arrive with a zeroed rifle as we will only be confirming zeros, not covering any theory. Optics (1X or Variable Power) are not mandatory but are strongly recommended. While other carbines are allowed, this class is best suited for AR style weapon systems.


Topics to be covered include –

  • Carbine Setup Refresher
  • Defensive Carbine Safety Refresher
  • Accelerated Defensive & Practical Fundamentals “Enough Accuracy As Fast As Possible”
  • Reloading Doctrine / Malfunction Clearances (Review)
