This one-day course primarily covers the AR-15 platform, as it is the most popular rifle in America and the rifle that many new owners purchase. Our goal is to grow proficiency with your new rifle, as well as help you zero and maintain your rifle. New and experienced shooters alike will find useful and applicable information throughout this course! This class is primarily conducted on the range working on fundamental marksmanship in the various shooting positions; standing, sitting, kneeling, and prone, as well as a variety of other drills. This course will cover concepts that apply to many other carbines, and our instructors can apply the concepts to whichever semi-automatic rifle you have (Ruger 10-22, AK, M1 Carbine, etc.).

Students will need the following:

  • Rifle
  • Minimum 2 magazines
  • 100 rds (FMJ preferred)
  • Eye & ear protection, close-toed shoes
  • Any other range gear you usually prefer! (magazine loaders, kneepads, etc., not required)

If you do not have a rifle yet or ammunition, let us know and we will provide one for the course and ammunition at cost for use in the course. Let us know if there is a specific rifle you are looking to try out!

Contact us at with any questions about this course, and we look forward to working with you!
