Event description


Every Day Ready is conducting a full day Carbine Operator 1 course.

No experience is necessary! Learn to operate and employ an AR-15 or similar type carbine rifle, including field stripping, basic handling, loading, unloading, zeroing, marksmanship fundamentals, engaging targets at various ranges, shooting on the move, reloads, clearing malfunctions, and much more! The course will cover both skills and application. Hold on to your hat, because this course involves a lot of shooting! You will leave this course operating your carbine rifle with increased skill and confidence.

Carbine Operator 1 (CO1) provides shooters with basic carbine manipulation and shooting instruction. The course begins at a basic level and brings shooters to a higher level of safety, proficiency, and confidence in carbine operation. The course primarily addresses operation of AR15 type systems, but can also support the operation of AK and other common carbine systems.

Shooters will learn basic manual of arms, carry techniques, ready positions, zeroing the rifle, fundamentals of rifle marksmanship, shooting positions, reloading, clearing soft malfunctions, and will learn to employ the carbine rifle at ranges from 5yds to 100yds. CO1 includes a basic carbine qualification to establish a baseline measurement of skills.

During the CO1 course, shooters will fire on both paper and steel targets. The course is hands-on and contains very limited lecture time. Students will also receive brief instruction in basic field stripping and cleaning of their carbine rifle.

While students will benefit the most from the use of ‘iron’ sights in training, students may use red-dot or other optics as they desire. Optics with higher magnification are not recommended as they are not suitable for the close range work in this course.

The cost is $150 per student.
