Tactical Application Rifle: Level Two
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be adapting our class format to allow greater personal space between individuals. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
(“TAR-Two”) takes the skills taught in TAR-One to the next level of tactical shooting. Students will review the fundamentals, and apply them in a practical evolution from principles of marksmanship and basic skills to using a rifle in a fight.
Students will learn and practice intermediate to advanced techniques of tactical carry and deployment of rifles, use of cover, shooting on the move, weapon retention, and positional shooting. Students will train to engage multiple targets and be challenged in simulated-stress firing drills.
***This is not a beginner-level class. Tactical Application Rifle: Level One is a prerequisite for all applicants.
