"Running the Carbine" is an extensive, high-learning curve, 2-day course designed for a new shooter to the carbine rifle. However, Day 2 brings a challenge for ANY shooter looking to test their skills.
Day 1 starts off in classroom mode before moving on to live-fire drills. The classroom will cover the following: weapon types, ammunition selection, break-down and assembly, nomenclature, cleaning, sights, trigger control, loading and unloading, clearing, malfunctions, magazine changes, alternate positions, shooting on the move, multiple targets, barricade use, shot placement, and a safety brief prior to moving to the range.
The drills on Day 1 are designed to build on good fundamentals for sights, trigger, and positional work. This will be done through repetition and low stress. With over 450 rounds scheduled for Day 1, you WILL become one with your gun.
Day 2 brings it all together with times speed drills, multiple target drills, movement drills, and alternate position drills. With over 750 rounds scheduled for Day 2, be prepared to run your carbine.
Each participant will receive a score sheet for Day 2 to keep track of their progress.
Additionally, for a $100 fee, any participant of this class who wishes to return at a later date to participate in another Day 2 only, to improve on their score sheet, will only need ammunition for Day 2 and their previous score sheet.
Equipment: Rifle with sling, minimum of 3 magazines (at least one 30-round magazine), magazine holders, 1300 rounds, ear and eye protection, pad and pen, cleaning equipment, clothing for weather conditions, and optional elbow/knee pads.
