Foundation Carbine

CLASS COST: 

$175

A non-refundable $100 deposit is needed to reserve your spot.
The remaining balance (if not paid in full) plus applicable range fee is due at the start of class via CASH or CHECK.

 

DESCRIPTION:

Class flow: MODERATE (students can expect full day of shooting and weapon manipulation from a static line) 

Foundation Carbine is designed to stress the importance of proper weapon manipulation and shooting techniques. The goal of this MDFI Foundation class is to build a strong and efficient foundation regarding the proper use and manipulation of the Carbine as a defensive tool.  Without a strong foundation, any additional training is wasted time.  This class will prepare students for our "Advanced" level classes and is a mandatory prerequisite to move on with the MDFI curriculum.
