This course is designed for the prospective, new or inexperienced AR-15 rifle owner.  The course consists of a half day in the classroom beginning with SAFETY, learning the history, cycle of operation, function, field disassembly/assembly, nomenclature, safe loading/unloading, basic malfunction clearances, and sighting options, both iron sights and RDS and LPV’s.

Ammunition types, ballistics and performance choices discussed in the context of mission.

No live ammunition in the classroom, “dummy rounds” provided.

Second half of the day will be on the range and will consist of live fire drills in the basic firing positions of standing, seated and prone.  Zeroing the rifle will be worked through; why and at what distances.

Single rounds, multiple rounds, reduced target zones, and efficient gun handling will be demonstrated and practiced.

Shooting mat, if desired.
