Defensive Rifle I is our introductory course for those with nominal or no experience with the AR-15 firearm system, as well as those who simply want to learn to "run" their rifle more efficiently and effectively. In this course participants will be introduced to the safe handling, functioning and operation of semi-automatic AR-15/ M-16/ M-4 rifle.  Students will also learn proper techniques for shooting and maintaining their rifle. This course is a confidence builder in addition to providing the student with the ability to learn how to incorporate the AR-15 platform in conjunction with a home defense plan through simple drills and practice.

Rifle ownership is not a prerequisite for this course. The course's instructor(s) will assist those who don’t own a firearm with both selection and the purchasing process.  Defensive Rifle I has two (2) training modules, the first module (A) being classroom (non-firing) instruction and the second part (Module B) being conducted at a firing-range (live-fire) instruction.
