Carbine Basics

CLASS COST: 

$175

Applicable range fee (typically $20 - $25) is due at the start of class via CASH or CHECK.

 

DESCRIPTION:

Class flow: RELAXED (students can expect a slow pace focusing on the AR-15 platform and marksmanship) 

This class takes carbine shooting back to the basics. In an attempt to focus on the defensive use of a carbine, many classes do not focus a great deal of time on the ability to place a bullet precisely where the shooter wants it to go. This MDFI core class takes a look at the special considerations needed to properly use the AR-15 platform and keep it running, how to conduct a proper sight-in, and will prepare the student for foundation-level defensive training.
