AR-15 Fundamentals - Registration

Your AR-15 is zeroed, and you know how it works, but now you want to know how to use it for defensive purposes. In our AR Fundamentals class, we build upon our Intro to AR-15 course to teach you how to safely and efficiently run your AR-15 or similar carbine. We start in the classroom with a review of safety, rifle marksmanship, and the necessary equipment to fight with a carbine. We then head to the range to learn the fundamentals of how to stand, load, shoot accurately, and conduct bolt lock re-loads at close range under realistic time and accuracy standards. By the end of class you will have the fundamental knowledge and skill necessary to employ your AR-15 effectively at close range, and be ready for more demanding training.

Pre-requisite: Intro to AR-15 or similar course. Those people wishing to take the course without having taken Intro to AR-15 must first demonstrate understanding of the basic nomenclature, operation and zeroing process for an AR-15 to an OnPoint instructor.
