What if you could only have one rifle? Serious men have discussed the merits of different platforms/ optics for years. With a properly configured “hybrid carbine” you can confidently make all of the time standards at CQB distances and then transition and engage out to 600-700 yards. This course will teach you solid carbine fundamentals on day one and then transition to shooting holds out to 500-700 yards, understanding MOA's/ Mil's, reading wind, ammo and optics selection, spotting and basic medical.
