The Scoped Carbine course is a class designed for the shooter who wants to prepare their skill set for purposes other than home defense. Varmint hunting, longer range target shooting, and general recreation. The course curriculum still contains the necessary tasks to prepare the student for attendance to the advanced carbine class, 556. The student will receive instruction on carbine manipulations, ballistic software, wind, multiple target engagements from 50 to 600 yards, shooting from supports, intermediate shooting positions, shooting with a sling, house clearing, flashlight searching and target engagement techniques and moving targets. This is not a precision rifle course, so don’t feel you need an expensive gun and match ammo. Most AR-15s with a good scope on them shooting 55gr FMJ will do just fine in the class.

I’m a retired Navy diver and this is the 6th class I’ve taken here. It’s always good to refresh & retrain and this is the best and only place to do that.
