This class is geared toward novice to experienced shooters who are already familiar with their rifles and are looking outside the basic classes to tune up their carbine skills. At this level we expect students to have an understanding of weapon manipulation and most importantly muzzle awareness and safety.

This course balances the speed and accuracy requirements many seek. There is heavy emphasis on accuracy and timed standards and weapons flow (this course can and will be tailored up to the skill levels of students attending as needed).
