This dynamic proficiency course is vital for the student to learn and understand the importance of utilizing his/her primary carbine and in the event of a malfunction or stoppage with the threat imminent, carefully and tactically transitioning to your handgun. This exciting proficiency course is one of our most popular, giving the student a chance to train with both weapon systems: tactical AR-15 carbine fundamentals working side by side with defensive handgun fundamentals to keep you sharp. We will do a variety of handling and defensive drills designed to give the student a realistic perspective of the defensive use of the carbine and handgun as well.
