Carbine 2 (Rifle)

Carbine 2

There are three levels of Long gun or Carbine training that we 0ffer; 1, 2 and 3.  The main difference between the levels is tempo.  In the Carbine 1 class we go the slow to ensure everyone is SAFE, and everyone is learning the subject matter.  In the Carbine 2 course we speed up the tempo somewhat, and in Carbine 3 class is high tempo. Rimfire (.22 lr) firearms are OK to bring if you want instead of shooting a more expensive caliber.

Class is approximately 6-8 hours long – tuition = $125.00


Prerequisite – Carbine 1 (or another course if approved by UTG)

Class Size – 6 ~ 10 students 

Safety Brief – Administrative Brief
