Event description
The goal of this course is to establish a foundation and allow students to pursue a path of refinement in the defensive use of a carbine.

About this Event

The AR-15 in all its variants, also known as the Modern Sporting Rifle, is one of the most owned and purchased rifles or carbines in the history of the United States. As of 2015 the National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that there are 1.3 million of them, and chances are that you own one or more of these firearms. There are many reasons to own one, but this class covers the defensive use of one of these Modern Sporting Rifles or its equivalent. In this class we cover fundamentals of marksmanship as well as manipulation techniques for this popular platform. This class starts with the basics but progresses into intermediate and advanced concepts. This course is designed and taught by instructors with decades of competition, law enforcement, and military experience, as well as numerous credentials related to firearms in those pursuits. The goal of this course is to establish a foundation and allow students to pursue a path of refinement in the defensive use of a carbine.

Duration: 8 Hours Class Start: 9AM Location: Cedar Mountain Youth 4H, Crittenden Ln (Across from General Winderer Rd), Culpeper, VA

Equipment Requirements: You will need an AR-15 or similar semi-auto magazine fed rifle, 3 or more magazines for your rifle, a sling, the ability to retain at least two magazines on your person, 400 rounds of ammunition for your rifle (no steel core, armor piercing, or tracer), ballistic rated eye and ear protection (electronic amplified is highly recommended), not mandatory but also highly recommended is a brimmed cap.

Topics to be covered:

  • Use of the AR-15 and similar rifles in the real world
  • Rifle setup
  • Zero and height over bore
  • Handling and manipulation
  • Shooting positions and stability
  • Reloads
  • Malfunctions
  • Load and Reload Techniques

Attendance Considerations: This is not designed as a student’s first course and it is certainly not introductory level material. Verification of previous training is not required but honest self-assessment is. We do stress the fundamentals and highly encourage all that choose to quarry a firearm for self-defense to pursue excellence in its use. At a minimum to attend you must know and should be able to follow at all times the 4 Cardinal Rules of Firearms safety, you also need to be familiar, comfortable and basically proficient with the 4 Count Draw, knowledge of your firearms manual of operation specifically how to safely load it, and unload it, open the action and keep the action open is necessary. An open mind and a willingness to be challenged, to learn and to improve are desirable. Train hard! We hope to see you on the range.
