Description: This two-part course will take you through every element you’ll find necessary when building a solid foundation of safety and function with a carbine rifle.

The classroom portion will cover parts, pieces, and basic rifle operation. Firearm take down, an overview of cleaning technique, and troubleshooting basics confirm the foundational understanding of how it works and why. Dry fire practice introduces accuracy aids, proper positional shooting, and competency in full platform operation.

The Range portion finds us understanding the sight in process, practicing multiple types of reloads, malfunction clearing, and basic accuracy from your respective point blank out to 50 yards. Positional shooting tests accuracy, while basic barricade work stretches new skills. The range portion is a fun filled mix of active shooting drills to lock in new-found skills.

This course benefits the first time carbine shooter as well as the experienced. Tips on Alaska state law, the use of carbines for home and personal defense, and the legality of hunting with a carbine are shared in appreciation of this multi-purpose platform.
