Formerly known as “Skill Builder”, this is an extremely athletic and intense day of training to develop mastery in the skills and knowledge of combat rifle craft. Our primary focus is on mastering shooting fundamentals, to include extensive training on weapons handling, conventional field positions (aka “Dirt Yoga”), dynamic movement, and rapid fire.
Prepare yourself ahead of time with sleep, stretching, nutrition, hydration, and exercise. You will be sore.
I highly recommend that you take Introduction to Fighting Rifle (Fighting Rifle 1) before joining this class. Having said that, some of you will want to skip the prerequisite. If you can confidently and correctly answer the following questions, go ahead and skip the prereq.
- What is Fragmentation Velocity?
- What is your maximum ordinate height?
- At 25 yards, you shoot a 1.5″ group. How many MOA is your group?
- What is your maximum point blank range?
- At 50 yards, you shoot a group 3.5 inches left and 7 inches low. How many minutes of angle do you need to adjust? How many clicks is that?
