Pre-enrollment is strictly required: It is not okay to just show up. You must pre-register, either over the phone or online. The classes fill very quickly so we recommend you call well in advance. Confirmation information will be sent to you by mail, including a map to our location along with any other information you need before attending class. Please note the following details:
- Women who are pregnant or nursing may not participate in live-fire training, due to risks from lead exposure and loud noise.
- Each student will be required to sign a statement that they are legally entitled to own handguns prior to participation in the class.
Level 1 Rifle is a 1-day training course covering a broad range of topics dealing with general rifle or carbine use.
Designed for the student who has little or no experience using rifles or carbines, we will start at the beginning with basic rifle marksmanship principles, sighting in and establishing a "zero" for your rifle. Then, after students are comfortable with the operation of their rifles and are sighted in, we will progress into different shooting positions and targets set at varying distances. Day ends with optional rifle maintenance and cleaning.
Tactical Rifle is a 2-day course, geared for the patrol officer or armed citizen wanting to increase proficiency with the use of the semi-auto rifle/carbine. Instruction includes use of cover, multiple targets, rapid fire, long range shooting (out to 200 yards), malfunction clearing and speed reloading, moving and shooting and shooting on moving targets, along with use of the rifle in low light environments. Students also take the challenging FAS Rifle Master Test at the end of the second day.
This two-day course is our third level rifle offering, and is designed to train the student in the use of the rifle/carbine in “urban, inside the house or across the street situations,” primarily distances from 3 to 25 yards.
In 2016, we combined our Precision Rifle 1 and Precision Rifle 2 classes into one intensive, 3-day, 30 hour course of instruction, which has since proven very popular and often fills early, so don't wait too long to register. By combining sessions we do not have to spend a half a day on review and re-zeroing, and with our new, improved rifle ranges, we are able to accomplish all we did before with this one course.
FAS range days give Alumni an opportunity to practice skills you've developed during your training. This range day will give you practice on our 400 yard paper and 625 yard steel ranges.
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).
