Rifle
l1rifleLevel 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.

Any modern production rifle is allowed in this course, including pistol caliber carbines, lever action rifles and bolt action rifles.

Level One Rifle Equipment List
 
 
Tactical Rilvl1riflfle is 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, search techniques, 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.

Pistol caliber carbines are NOT suitable for this class. We highly recommend a .223 caliber rifle of the AR-15 configuration, though semi-auto rifles of other make have done well in our rifle training. Combat type of scope such as the ACOG is acceptable, along with iron sights, of course. Iron sights do not have a disadvantage in this course.

Prerequisites: our Level 1 Rifle or equivalent from another school. Student will be required to present background check to prove no felony record, which may include a state-issued license to carry a concealed handgun, military or police identification or other form of background check prior to participation. Call before class if you have questions.

Tactical Rifle Equipment List
 
Our second level of rifle/carbine training, enthusiastically received when introduced in 2007, centers on using the .223 semi-auto carbine for close range encounters, from 3 to 25 yards. Subject matter includes movement, moving targets, 360-degree awareness and target engagement, along with multiple targets, low-light shooting, transition to handgun and hostage rescue concerns. Use of cover and stress exercises are also included. Students will also have the opportunity to take the FAS Rifle Master Test (detailed below under the Read More link) at the end of the second day.

Prerequisites: This course requires the student to have completed Level 1 Rifle or equivalent, along with Defensive Handgun or equivalent. Student will be required to present background check to prove no felony record, which may include a state-issued license to carry a concealed handgun, military or police identification or other form of background check prior to participation. Call before class if you have questions.

Note about .308 caliber rifles in Close Quarters Carbine class: There is a component of this class incorporating extremely rapid fire/high round count firing drills, and we believe the .308, while a great battle rifle cartridge, is not suitable for this class due to the recoil of the rifle and the effect it has on the shooter in these particular drills. We strongly urge a .223 caliber rifle, but if you choose to go with the .308, at least have the good sense to get a PAST recoil pad for your shoulder!
