The Ranch

Tactial Training Facility in San Antonio, TX

Advanced Application of Carbine Fundamentals (8 HRS)

Note: To attend this class, at a minimum, students must know and should be able to follow at all times the 4 Cardinal Rules of Firearms safety.


Fundamentals are the foundation of every shooter. No matter your skill level (Beginner to Advanced) your fundamentals have to be strong in order to put hits on target. This class goes in depth on how to develop and execute good fundamentals on demand no matter the situation you find yourself in. Students of all skill levels will improve their baseline rifle shooting skills through drills and exercises with a strong emphasis on executing the fundamentals from various positions and on increasingly more challenging targets.  Students will take away the knowledge and skills to not only have confidence that they can put a bullet exactly where it needs to go but also the ability to develop and diagnose their personal performance on their own.


Your carbine must be zeroed prior to this class.

If you need assistance zeroing your carbine for this class, please contact us.  We can also make arrangements to help you zero your carbine prior to the start of the clinic.
