Defensive Rifle II is intended for students with an operational knowledge of their slinged rifle, relatively proficient with reloading and clearing malfunctions, transitions between it and a holstered handgun, and use of cover and concealment when deploying a rifle.

Over the course of eight hours, our friendly instructors will combine classroom and range time to establish good habits and proper fundamentals through topics such as:

*A brief review of proper procedures for loading and unloading, slinged carrying and use, storage, transportation of a firearm/ammunition; Reloading drills and Malfunction drills, to include alternative reload and malfunction clearance and loading procedures; Cover and concealment, and the use thereof; Moving and shooting; Self Defense concepts
*Tactical considerations
*Small team and small unit considerations
*Multiple drills involving single person and multiple person shooters, under time and distance and other artificial stressors and multiple targets
*Transitioning between rifle, handgun, and back while engaging targets while stationary and moving
*Safety as an engrained mindset

The Defensive Rifle series is designed to take students from static line shooting into applying their skills in a real-world environment.  Through the supervision of our instructors, you will learn how to fight back with a rifle and handgun while under stress.
