This course is designed to have clients acquire rifle skills using rifles not based on contemporary martial rifle designs, and as well showing these “ Other” types of rifles potential applications. Many of you are familiar with B.Y.O.B. concept…in this course it changes to B.Y.O.Rifle!


You bring your closet/grandpa’s rifle and we will teach you how to use the rifle you have to protect your family and yourself.


The course is designed to primarily address danger close ranges of 0-100 yards to 300 yards. Basic tactics will include outdoor scenarios as well as “other rifle” pick up drills. Fundamental skills, i.e. "use cover so you don’t get shot" drills, ammunition management, malfunction correction, sling use and practical positions, communications, movement to and away from contact, and shooting well, not necessarily fast or a lot, are covered.


After this course I believe your regard for the “OLD” rifle you have will exceed your current expectations.


This is NOT a frangible ammunition course.
