If you own a carbine rifle or just want to learn about these, much-talked-about (and often misrepresented), weapons then this course is for you!

Tactical Rifle (formerly known as Carbine 1) is Sheepdog Response’s introduction to the use of the carbine rifle (compact, semi-automatic rifle with a changeable magazine). The Tactical Rifle course is open to anyone who wants to learn how to employ this incredibly effective weapon system for self-defense. We cover the selection of accessory equipment and set up for carbine operations to include loading, firing, correcting malfunctions, and rapid reloading of a carbine. You’ll learn the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship and zeroing techniques that will help you achieve its full potential for self-defense. See what it takes to successfully shoot, move, utilize cover, and accurately engage with a carbine rifle from various positions and situations. The Tactical Rifle course is fast-paced, fun, and informative.
