Do you know how to move with your rifle? Can you shoot while moving? Can you rapidly move into and out of cover?
This class provides an opportunity to take common static marksmanship principles and apply movement. Increase the number of tools in your toolbox or sharpen the ones you already have.
Rapidly chaging positions, moving from position to position, sling use, transition to pistol, shooting on the move.
Expectations and Outcomes
Student should leave with a broader base of knowledge involving movement with the carbine and shooting while moving with the carbine.
Advanced, Intermediate, Rifle
Eye and ear protection. Electronic is best so you can hear without taking ears on and off.
Closed toe shoes (range requirement)
Reliable Rifle chambered in a centerfire rifle caliber. (Bringing a backup is a good idea if you own one but it’s not necessary) please make sure it is zeroed or “sighted in” we will confirm zeroes but there isn’t time for you to zero for an hour. If you need help reach out to me.
500 rounds of ammo. I can help source Ammo if you’re having a hard time finding it.
Rifle should have a primary optic and a secondary sighting system (second red dot, offset or flip up irons, visible laser etc.) irons only is ok but not optimal
Adjustable sling, preferably 2 point. There is a block of instruction on sling stabilization and it centers around a 2 point sling
3 magazines, 6 being optimal and a way to carry at least 1 spare on you (mag pouch, pants pockets etc.) with magazines the more the better to be honest.
Lube and cleaning rods
Long pants, we will be on the ground a lot. Long sleeves are also probably a good idea. Knee pads are also a good idea, but not required.
Sunscreen and bug spray. You aren’t immune to those things.
Ball cap and/or neck gaiter or shemagh to keep the sun off your head and neck
Rain gear. I am a rain magnet, so prepare accordingly. I think it has rained at 80% of the outdoor classes that I have taught and attended.
Enough water for the day the class can be physically challenging for some and the sun is physically challenging for all.
Pack a lunch and snacks. Lunch is 30 minutes you don’t have enough time to leave eat and return without missing a part of the class
