Who is this for?

The Carbine Gunfighter for Law Enforcement Course is designed for all officers who deploy with a carbine- from Patrol Rifle to SWAT personnel.

Course Description

Two (2) Day

This course is designed to help students discover gunfighting principles through dynamic reality-based training drills. Using force on force, students will discover mistakes made in the engagement phase and how to properly use team members. Instructors will film extensively, allowing students the chance to study and review their effectiveness under pressure. We will address range training scars that are highlighted during the force on force exercises and work to remedy them during live range drills. We will introduce low light carbine gunfighting and proper use of equipment- be prepared to have your gear setup tested!

The goal of this training is for students to have a better understanding of fighting principles, allowing them to return to their departments and self-diagnose the effectiveness of their current team tactics during a gunfight. Theories will be tested, concepts will be proven or disproven, all for the benefit of the operator and his teammate.
