PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE – THIS CLASS WILL NOW BE HELD ON JUNE 8th (not JUNE 1st as originally scheduled)
Carbine 2 (8 hours, 350 rounds rifle)
Carbine 2 is the second day in our series of carbine courses. Carbine 2 will push students to apply the marksmanship fundamentals and weapon handling skills from Carbine 1, to a variety of newly taught skills including movement, use of cover / concealment, support-side shooting positions, and improvised shooting positions. Students will learn how to identify and remedy five rifle malfunctions which can fixed through remedial action.
Students will receive instruction and practice in shooting while moving, and increasing efficiency in their movement into and out of shooting positions. Students will learn why the saying “move only as fast as you can shoot” is a misnomer which only applies to a limited number of situations, and how students can improve the speed and accuracy of their first shots on target when moving to a new shooting position or position of cover.
Students will perform these skills under the watchful eyes of experienced rifle instructors who will provide each student with individualized feedback and analysis for improvement, in a performance-based manner. Students will shoot a number of dynamic skill-building drills which will help to build their comfort performing under stress with an elevated heart rate.
Other topics include:
-Basic Rifle Marksmanship and weapon handling review
-Shooting on the move
-Moving into and out of shooting positions
-Multiple target engagements
-Using cover and concealment
-Improvised shooting positions
-Offset and POA/POI as it applies to CQB and weapon cant
-Rifle malfunctions and remedial action
-Support side shooting
-Shooting under stress / elevated heart rate
-Performance based training objectives
Prerequisites: Students must have completed Carbine 1 to attend.
**We are occasionally asked if someone with more experience can skip Carbine 1 and just take Carbine 2. We have tried this with a couple students, and afterwards they have generally all wished they attended Carbine 1 first. Carbine 2 is not designed as a “higher speed” class. It covers different material than C1, and requires a solid understanding of not just the HOW, but the WHY of techniques covered in C1. C1 is the foundation to upon which we build new knowledge in C2. Simply put, it just doesn’t work. If you think you are too high speed to benefit from the information in Carbine 1, then you are likely exactly the type of person who needs to attend Carbine 1.
Equipment: Range gear, AR-15 (or similar) semi-automatic rifle equipped with a tactical sling, with at least three magazines. Handgun with holster and spare magazine. 350 rifle rounds. Appropriate range and fighting gear per your assignment or situation.
