Welcome to the debut of our new pilot program, Introduction to Fighting Rifle! As with all of our pilot programs, you are looking at an exciting and very limited opportunity for innovative and high quality training at a great price, with small class sizes and high instructor to student ratio.

In exchange for these perks, you understand you’re buying a program which is in the pre-production/ beta testing/ prototyping/ experimental/ developmental stages, and as such, things may be presented out of sequence, the curriculum will be imperfect, we might forget some gear, or run overtime, etc. Cool? Cool.

The goal of this program is to create a beginner friendly, all-answers-in-one-place primer for folks who may have just bought their first rifle, are interested in purchasing a first rifle, or are interested in starting their journey in formal tactical firearm training, but don’t know where to start.

As with all of our into series classes, we will address gun safety in great detail, and devote a good chunk of time in discussing “Scope and Purpose”, with questions such as:

Why own a rifle?

What is the second amendment and what does it mean to me?

How does someone purchase a rifle in California

How to navigate California guns laws

What can a modern rifle do and not do?

How to load, unload, and clear malfunctions with common rifles.`

How to choose sights, optics, slings and accessories

How to stand, hold, breathe, aim and fire a rifle effectively.

How to zero, or calibrate the sights or scope

How to disassemble and clean a rifle

We may then wrap up the class with some fun races and friendly competitions in marksmanship, and in all the skills you learned! Before we go, as usual, we’ll take a group photo and clean up the range and then we would love to hear your feedback and suggestions for how we can improve the program in the next go-around.

You will need:

1 gallon of water

Pen and paper for taking notes

Rifle of any kind. You can borrow one if you don’t have your own. Email info@monarchdefense.org for details.

Register Early. Cost for the event will normally be $155, but for the sake of the pilot program, we’ll offer it at $75 per person, with discounts for bringing a buddy. Those who register with a friend save $30! There will be no early discount this time around, since we only have a couple of spots, and all will sell out in a few days.
