Rifle 301 is an intensive, advanced level carbine course.

This course will help the student understand what and how their body reacts to critical confrontations, and how to improve their fundamental shooting speed and accuracy. The student will also learn how to shoot in unorthodox shooting positions, transitioning between rifle and pistol, movement, and cover and concealment. Throughout the course, we will discuss reality-based shooting and mindset that will aid in your decision-making and problem-solving skills to complete certain drills or tasks.
