This course is designed to teach patrol officers and tactical team operators the fundamentals and dynamics of carbine / patrol rifle handling in a tactical environment.
Many shooting conflict situations occur in an urban environment and range between 3 – 75 yards.
Our goal is to equip the operator with various concepts and make them train and shoot under extreme situations.
Active shooter situations are becoming more apparent on a monthly basis within the United States and various departments are now switching from shotguns to patrol rifles to handle these traumatic attacks in our schools and business centers.
