Intro to Carbine course

This 3-4 hour course introduces new shooters to safe use, storage, and the operation of a carbine (AR-15, M-4, or AK system) allowing them to practice confidently on their own at the range and attend future training. Training consists of lecture, demonstration, dry-fire practice, and a brief live-fire familiarization session that includes obtaining a 25-yard rough zero.

It is highly recommended that carbine users consider a “dot” optical sight on their carbine and if possible, zero it before class. Make sure to bring the user manual for your scope or optics and carbine. Use of scopes for long range shooting is not covered in the class.
