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.
This class is for students who understand the fundamentals of marksmanship, live by the four rules of responsible firearms handling, and are looking to learn to use the rifle/carbine as a defensive tool.

First time training w/ MDFI and will be back for more. Tim and Roman were friendly and helpful instructors, and knew how to keep the class flowing. Safety was clearly the top priority, and it never stopped anyone from getting the knowledge or coaching they needed to succeed in the situations we were put into. Definitely recommended to anyone interested in the curriculum above.
2nd class taken with MDFI. The instructors are great, very knowledgeable in their field and have more patience that I thought possible. They truly wish for you to succeed for the sake of the entire fire arms community. Already Sighed up for the next class, cant wait... full tour here i come.
Legit training, Legit instructors!!
Prior Detroit Police and now in the suburbs of the city. I have attended multiple rifle courses and training throughout my career, no matter what skill set you are you can take away from this class. It's fun, very knowledgeable and detailed. The level of training, material and instructors are hard to find and especially at this price point.
The class was outstanding. Coming in I was quite confident in my marksmanship but realized quick, fast and in a hurry that marksmanship is just one component of many when it comes to being proficient with a carbine. I identified many areas where I need a lot of work. It didn’t stop with identification, I was also patiently shown proper technique for each aspect of the class. I left chewing a bit of humble pie, but also left with the knowledge needed to keep practicing at home. This was my first of hopefully many classes with MDFI.
As always, great course of fire, rock solid students, and instruction was second to none. This was my second time taking this F. Carbine and I walked away with plenty of things to work on as this course exposed some deficiencies in my training. What I really enjoyed that even though I had already taken the class before, there was still plenty of things to tweak and get better on. Roman and Sean took the time and made sure they addressed everyone on the line with not only things to work on or try, but praise for doing the drills well. I can't speak for anyone else in the class, but that constant feedback, whether good or bad, humbled me and helped me tremendously. Thank you Tim, Roman, and Sean for a great class and experience. See you on the line again soon!
