Basic Carbine Level 1
Firearm Training Course
Carbine level 1 builds on the Intro to Carbine course, and is the first in 88 Tactical’s series of semi-automatic rifle courses geared toward personal protection. Carbine Level 1 is a basic course that is appropriate for individuals that have no carbine experience as well as for those who have some carbine handling experience but are interested refining their skills and becoming more proficient with the AR-type platform.
Participants will review gun safety and discuss equipment considerations, ammunition, and accessory setup for AR-15 rifles. From there, students receive an in-depth lesson on the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship, which includes an instructor demonstration followed by student dry-fire practice.
For the remainder of the training, participants head to the range for a variety of tactical shooting drills designed to improve their rifle marksmanship and to help develop a prevailing mindset. These drills will also develop the confidence needed to successfully use a rifle for self-defense.
At the end of the course, participants will complete a validation shoot to measure their ability to apply fundamentals of marksmanship. The validation shoot also serves to identify areas of strength as well as areas that the shooter needs to improve on before progressing to additional levels of training.
All 88 Tactical training courses are built on the core concept of Reality Behavior-Based Conditioning© (RBBC). RBBC was developed from this maxim: “the study of behavior is as important as the study of tactics.” 88 Tactical courses condition an appropriate crisis response that maximizes performance while working with, instead of against, a person’s survival-oriented instincts and intuitions.
