Defensive Rifle

July 28, 2018 @ 9:00 am - July 29, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


 DR is an all-day rifle course that gives the student a firm base of knowledge on engaging threats at close range and in restricted environments. Taught under the guide of US Marine combat veteran Tom Dillon the student will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective in a multitude of close-quarters situations.

Additionally, this course is intended to make the student more comfortable manipulating their rifle and gear, engaging threats when under stress, and to learn the basics of intuitive shooting. These are skills that are necessary when engaged in a real world, immediate threat engagement scenario.

This course will all be shot at defensive ranges, and teach the basics of how to handle your rifle in a defensive situation.
