Objective: Students will learn the safe and proper operation and manipulation of their rifle systems along with basic fundamentals and movement designed to increase confidence and proficiency.

Course Description: This course is task-based rather than time-based and designed to meet students at their individual skill level. All drills will be thoroughly explained, demonstrated by a certified instructor and students will have the opportunity to proceed through the courses (dry-fire) prior to progressing to the live-fire drills.

Course topics include:

  • Reloads (emergency vs. tactical);
  • Recognizing different types of malfunctions and understanding how to safely and quickly resolve them;
  • Introduction to movement (getting off the “X” and line drills); and,
