Carbine 1.5 is a course designed for the experienced shooter who wants to expand their abilities and increase their proficiency with their weapons system of choice. Whether you are a competition shooter, have military/law enforcement experience, or want to gain a tactical advantage in a defensive situation this course has much to offer. During this 8 hour course the instructors will increase the simulated stress level until the class culminates in a combat reaction course designed to test your abilities. We have more games in our bag than Milton Bradley so be prepared to get dirty and extend your own limitations… Carbine 1.5 is intense and will challenge you.
NOTE: Students must have a “blow out kit” or IFAK containing at a minimum a tourniquet, pressure dressing, and clotting agent such as QuickClot. Part of the course will involve a buddy aid drill and use of these items will be covered.
