Green Ops LPVO Class

Prerequisite: Defensive Carbine I Class (8hrs) or equivalent carbine training (8-hours or more)
i.e. If the student has taken 8 hours of carbine training from another reputable training company/instructor, they don’t have to take our Carbine I class (or clinic) to attend this class. Our classes are NOT a prerequisite but training from a reputable company/instructor or competition experience is required.

The Low Powered Variable Power Optics (LPVO) Class is a 2-day, 16-hour tactical firearms training with the purpose of exploiting the LPVO to its maximum capability. Shooters will be challenged by executing various courses of fire (COF) testing their ability to employ the LPVO from CQB to combat engagement distances out to 600 yards. Additionally, shooters will be trained to gain the most advantageous position to exploit the LPVO's unique capabilities. The culminating exercise will allow shooters to employ all of the knowledge and techniques taught by the instructors in a buddy-team fire and maneuver live-fire exercise, engaging targets from CQB to long range engagements.

This course is for shooters with carbine platforms equipped with an LPVO (1-6X through 1-10X) who want to know what it takes to get accurate first round impact on targets beyond 100 yards. It is also for those of you who have higher capability rifle platforms with optics of higher magnification. The fundamentals of precision accuracy will be presented.

//The culminating exercise is a 2-man live fire exercise that requires running and gunning //
