Carbine I & II
These 3 day courses covers the full spectrum of the fighting carbine - from "house clearing" and entry techniques to mid-range field applications. Marksmanship, Manipulation and Tactics receive equal attention to detail.
Shotgun I & II
Our training is designed to clarify both the versatility and the limitations of the weapon. The syllabus covers tactical manipulation, patterning characteristics, the mount, deployment in both indoor and outdoor situations, use of the sling or carry strap, ammunition selection, night shooting, and transition from shoulder fired weapon to handgun.
This course is best suited to lightweight, fast handling bolt action rifles with iron sights or low power scopes. Lever rifles are also permitted. The format explores practical marksmanship at practical distances under field conditions. Problems are addressed from near contact distance out to 400 yards maximum.
