Our Kinetic Carbine 1 course is a 1 day, 8-hour class that will build shooters knowledge and skills with the AR-15 style carbine. Shooters will confirm zero and then begin application of Advanced Marksmanship skills, traditional and unconventional positions, movement and the use of barricades/cover, and more. Shooters will leave the course with a demonstrated knowledge of how to most effectively employ the carbine.

Kinetic Carbine 1 is not a beginner’s course. Our Intro to Carbine Course is appropriate for those with no prior Carbine experience.

*All students must either be existing QPro Defense Clients, possess a NM CHL, or submit to a criminal background check. Law enforcement, Active Military, and First Responders are exempt from this requirement.
