The class is designed for everyone whether you are a first time carbine shooter, a veteran carbine shooter wanting to refresh user skills, or just a weapons enthusiast. This course starts out with a lecture breaking down the different types of carbines. We teach students how to accessorize carbines for the environments in which they will be used in. We cover types of gear the student should consider and types of gear which needs to be avoided. The live fire portion begins with fundamentals of shooting accurately. These include stance, grip, sighting, breathing, trigger manipulation, and follow-through. We then work into loading, reloading, and weapons malfunction drills. Students then perform a standardized battle zero to ensure the firearm is shooting accurately. Then various stance, movement, weapons transitions, and multi-target acquisition drills are taught. This course is not designed specifically for only the AR-15 platform. It allows individuals to operate a multitude of different carbine platforms.
