The Amtac Shooting Carbine 1 Course or Carbine Fundamentals Course

This one-day course is designed to make you more capable by focusing on Carbine fundamentals. As protectors of our families, we want to reach the "unconscious competence" level of proficiency. The way we get to that level is by deliberate fundamentals training with feedback. Topics covered will include: mindset, carbine selection, setting up your carbine, zeroing your optics, fundamentals of marksmanship, proper weapons manipulation, fast and effective shooting at CQB, clearing malfunctions and intermediate distances and shooting and moving.
