Defensive Carbine Class I (8 HRS)

Description

This class is an extended version of our 4-hour clinic, but is a full 8-hours of training that includes additional drills, 50-yard qualification course of fire, field firing to 100 yards, and live fire malfunction clearance. This class covers the basic defensive use of the carbine (AR platform 5.56/.223). It will begin with the fundamentals of marksmanship and move into more advanced drills. Students will improve their carbine handling skills with a strong emphasis on the fundamentals.
