Rifle/Carbine Skill Builder Clinic #3: Stoppages and Ammunition-Related Malfunction Clearances (CCSSEF/Keene)

$75

with Keith Hanson

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 5, 2022 at 3:30 pm

This 3-hour intensive skill-builder clinic will bring the students through a ‘basics of safety’ review, then transition into training modules that compare and contrast stoppages and ammunition-related malfunctions, providing an understanding of the critical differences between the two, and teaching the student how to properly diagnose and tactically remediate both most commonly (and least-commonly) "jams." Students will also learn the principles behind safe and efficient one-handed immediate-action procedures.

Tuition includes instruction, all applicable range fees, and targets.

The Ammunition Management, Administrative Loading, Emergency, and Tactical Reloading Skill-Builder Intensive Clinic is taught by certified and credentialed law-enforcement tactical firearms master instructors.

 

PREREQUISITES:

Students must be able to demonstrate their understanding of basic firearms safety and handling concepts.  At a minimum, students should have the ability to safely load, discharge, unload, and show clear their defensive/sporting rifle/carbine. Completion of a basic firearms course (NRA First Steps Rifle, NRA Basic Rifle, or another basic rifle course) is preferred but not required.  

This clinic is NOT suited for the absolute novice. 

The training cadre reserves the right to immediately remove from the program any student who lacks sufficient understanding of basic safety practices or basic operational procedures using a defensive/sporting rifle/carbine.

 

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS:

1. Semi-automatic AR-styled rifle, carbine or AR pistol. 

2. Magazines: Students should bring a MINIMUM of three (3) magazines. Two magazines will work, however having only two magazines will slow the student down.

3. Magazine holder or magazine pouch:  Open, friction-lock-styled single or double holders are recommended over those with velcro or snap closures.

4. Ammunition: 100 rounds.

Ammunition should be factory-manufactured. Reloads are strongly discouraged. Ammunition for class IS available at cost with prior notification.

5. 'Snap Caps' or inert training rounds.  Students should have at least six (6) snap caps per magazine.  

Don't have snap caps?  We have you covered.  Inert training rounds are available for purchase on the day of class.

6. Eye Protection, Ear Protection, and Baseball Style Cap: Sunglasses may be worn in conjunction with a baseball cap with the bill worn forward. Safety glasses must be of the wrap-around type or employ side panels. If wearing prescription glasses, they must be covered with safety glasses unless they meet the above requirements. Earplugs or earmuffs (preferred), and it is highly recommended that a baseball cap with a bill to deflect ejected brass be worn.

7. Appropriate Clothing: Students should bring appropriate clothing to participate in the classroom portion of the training. Students should bring appropriate clothing to participate in the range exercises consistent with prevailing weather and temperature conditions. Range exercises will be conducted in inclement weather unless a safety hazard exists.  NOTE: Sandals, flip-flops, or any other form of open-toed shoes are NOT range-appropriate.

ABSOLUTELY NO: Camouflage fatigues, flak jackets, tactical vests*, bright red shirts, or bright red outerwear!

*Law enforcement officers and licensed armed private security officers are permitted to wear tactical vests if they are department/agency issued and/or approved. 

8. Note-Taking Material: A pen and a pocket-sized notebook for note-taking is highly recommended.
