Battle Rifle

Battle Rifle is a 5 day course designed for .30 battle rifles. Weapons like the Garand, M14/M1A variants, AR10/SR25/OBR variants and FN FAL are appropriate.

The Battle Rifle experience will make you intimately familiar with the characteristics of this system. You will have a mastery of the manipulation, continuity of fire, various sighting systems and flashlight techniques for low light conditions. Position shooting, zeroing procedures, and malfunction clearances are covered. You will experience a variety of indoor and outdoor simulators, in full daylight and low light/no light environments. The Battle Rifle class will provide you with the skills to manage your environment from 0 to 300 yards.

Students should bring a reliable rifle and a sighting system that works to 300 yards. Iron sights will work, but low-power optics or a red dot will allow you to shoot to your potential.  For consistency of training, students should bring a single lot of ammunition of proven reliability and accuracy.
