Defensive Carbine Class II (8 HRS)

Prerequisite: Defensive Carbine I Class (8hrs) or equivalent training (8-hours or more)


This class is a continuation of our defensive carbine series. It includes additional drills, 50-yard qualification course of fire, field firing to 100 yards, and live fire malfunction clearance drills. This class covers the basic defensive use of the carbine (AR platform 5.56/.223).  We will begin with a review of the topics and fundamentals of marksmanship from Defensive Carbine I and move into more advanced drills.  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.
