Defensive Rifle II

Skill Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: Defensive Rifle I

Physical Requirements: In order to participate in this class, you must understand the basics of how your firearm operates including being able to lock open and close the action as well as load and unload the firearm safely.

You should be able to “field strip” your firearm according to the owner’s manual for maintenance and cleaning.

You must be able to operate in a safe and controlled manner. We will find a balance between speed and accuracy while maintaining safety. Muzzle discipline (where the gun is pointed) and awareness is paramount.

You must also possess the physical strength and stamina to repetitively function and fire your weapon during training drills, as well as be able to move forward, backward, and laterally, while maintaining control of yourself and your firearm at all times. You are also expected to be able to sit, stand, kneel, bend, lie prone, and assume various shooting positions from cover/concealment.

You must exercise self-discipline and be able to maintain mental, physical, and emotional control without becoming overexcited or otherwise losing your composure.

You must accept coaching and follow instructions and all commands as well as have a keen awareness and consideration for other participants while handling firearms, especially while conducting live fire drills in close proximity of one another.

Objective: Students will advance their skills by practicing and reinforcing previous fundamentals learned while we increase the complexity of drills and the stress endured while executing them.
