About this Course

Tactical Rifle 

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.

Types of carbine rifles include (but aren’t limited to): AR-15s, AK-47s, M-14s, Mini-14s, Steyer AUG, H&K G3, and semiautomatic pistol caliber rifles (PCRs)
