Basic Carbine Level 2 course

Basic Carbine Level 2 builds on the fundamentals of defensive shooting presented in Basic Carbine Level 1. After a brief review of key topics taught in Level 1, the course adds additional ready/shooting positions, introduces close range point shooting, initial defensive off-line movement, intuitive unexpected malfunction clearance and reloads, pivots and turns, and precision engagements. The class finishes with a live-fire performance test.
