The purpose of this progressively intermediate to advanced ten hour course is to develop your urban rifle skills with your magazine-fed semi-automatic rifle. After a review of firearms safety and the fundamentals of shooting, we will work at distances ranging from 5 yards to 50 yards, enhancing your ability to quickly and effectively respond to a threat. Covered topics will include tactical reloading, clearing malfunctions, use of cover and concealment, quickly acquiring sight pictures, and transitions from your rifle to your handgun. We will engage multiple targets, and utilize standing, kneeling, and prone positions during challenging drills designed to sharpen your abilities. The course will conclude with instruction in low light and night shooting, including the use of flashlights, weapon-mounted lights, and lasers. Optical sights can be used during this course, but we will also train with the factory sights to ensure effectiveness in the event of an optical sight malfunction. Participation with magazine-fed rifles modified to comply with California law is encouraged. Successful completion of Basic Rifle Safety, a hunter safety course, or a demonstrated equivalent level of shooting experience and knowledge is a prerequisite to register for this course.
