Fundamentals of Rifle Deployment

What’s Rifle Deployment, you ask?  Engaging with your rifle in a dynamic environment to defend yourself or others.  In this class, learn to deploy your rifle, operate it efficiently, and move with it.  We’ll start off with training which focuses on firearm safety, handling and operation, and marksmanship.  After we dial you in we’ll turn the focus to positions and movement, because the AR-15 isn’t meant to be used while standing still!
