Defensive Rifle Class Overview
Phases 1-4 are fast paced and dynamic courses that will provide the AR15, AK, Mini 14 (Carbine) owner with how best to employ their carbine to win conflicts in the urban environment. Whether the engagement is from 3 yards to 100 yards, on the move, or dealing with a malfunctioning carbine, this course is designed to build confidence in the individual operator and their weapon.
Attendees should be in good physical condition – able to squat, kneel, and move expeditiously. It will be mandatory for participants to attend each phase of training to advance to the next phase.
