556 Advanced Carbine Night
It’s a fact that most confrontations occur in low light or darkness. It is imperative that you develop the skills and tactics necessary to prevail in these conditions.
The advance carbine class has been renowned by combat veterans and law enforcement officers from around the country.
This class will mirror the 556 curriculum, except, class will start at 1300 hours going through 2300 hours. There will be five night shoots during the class. Students should be prepared for long hours and the climate during this time of year.
556 Night Carbine is for those who will settle for no less than being the master of their carbine. Mirroring conditions from the field, pressure is on the operators as distance to the target is decreased and when lighting is less than optimal. Advanced manipulations, short reaction times and quick transitions to the secondary weapon is stressed. There will be more advanced simulators as well as force-on-force. This is a moderately physical class and shooter should be capable of getting into and out of various shooting positions through out the week.
A quality weapons mounted light and a hand held light is a must! Be sure to bring extra batteries to support your training.
