The defensive rifle course is designed for those with a basic knowledge of operation and safety of the rifle. This course will take you deeper into the use of the rifle in a defensive posture to protect you and your family. Your limits will be pushed in this course to develop a muscle memory for you to react safely and effectively. During this course we also incorporate the pistol allowing for a primary and secondary firearm transition.
*This course will include a stress-induced evolution to highlight discussions that take place throughout the day.
