The Carbine is the most effective firearm for self defense in nearly every situation.  While handguns offer concealability and portability, the Carbine’s superior range, accuracy, firepower, and ease of use offers distinct advantages to the trained user.  Our Carbine Program enables those with little to no experience with firearms or martial training to build their skill level to the highest point possible. The knowledge and skill sets acquired in the earlier courses allow students to train in effective use of advanced tactics and techniques that have been proven successful in high threat areas around the world. This six course program provides the training necessary for the individual to effectively defend themselves and operate as a member of a coordinated group.


Carbine Technique

The initial course in the carbine program starts with basic safety and handling and rapidly progresses towards applicable use under combative situations.  First time shooters have a "clean slate" advantage in this course as they can begin training with a minimal amount of habits, while experienced shooters will challenge existing skills and learn how they are applied to defensive use of the carbine, and learn the most up-to-date manipulation techniques.
