This class focuses on the unique challenges of using a carbine to protect you and your loved ones at the distances encountered in and around the home. While you are welcome to wear chest rigs and “battle belts”, the context of the material will be the rapid deployment of the carbine to counter threats in and around the home in situations in which you won’t have time to “gear up”.

***Due to the scarcity of ammo at present, a rimfire carbine such as the S&W M&P15-22 or a Ruger 10/22 will be welcome in the class.
