Colorado Three Day Carbine
Dates to be determined for this class. Mid to late September. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This 3 day class (hosted by Meridian) will be held at “Great Guns” in Nunn Colorado. This is not a basic class and will require intermediate skill with the modern carbine. AR15, SCAR L, AK74, Mini 14 and similar carbines are all applicable for this class. Gunsite instructors will bring their excellent course to Colorado…focusing on the “Modern Technique”, as applied to the carbine. Over the 3 days, various ranges (including structures) will be used to instruct on distances from contact to 200 yards. Marksmanship, gun handling and mindset are foundational to this class. Students will be working from a variety of positions and focus on how to use them with available cover. Various drills and training will be used to build skills in shooting on the move, getting off the line of attack and transitions from carbine to pistol. This class will have limited enrollment and will include agency attendants as well as qualified private individuals.
Lodging is roughly the same distance to Greeley, Fort Collins, or Cheyenne. Those towns have dozens of hotels and getting lodging should not be a challenge for anyone. Wellington is the closest town, and has 1 hotel. I have listed a few of the options that are at the closest edge of each town.

I liked the outstanding help the instructors provided to make me shoot better. On the first day it was a little hard but I managed. Also, the simulators provided a helpful experience to know what to do in a bad situation.
