Carbine Basics

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.

This is a great class for shooters new to the AR-15 rifle/carbine. We work together starting from the absolute basics to get the student prepared to add the AR-15 to their defensive tool-kit.

I took Carbine Basics and Foundation Carbine back-to-back. This was a great way to go. Carbine Basics will ground you in the most critical aspects of your carbine. The tools and techniques I learned in 'Basics around the principles of zeroing and offset were the biggest takeaway for me. No doubt this is where you want to begin your carbine journey.
