Basic Rifle is now offered in the GORUCK Tactical series. This is a course for brand new shooters who want to learn basic firearms safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship. We will begin the day with weapon setup, parts of the weapon, disassembly/reassembly, function checking and then zeroing your rifle. You will learn how to employ your rifle at various distances, firing positions, and rates of fire. By the end of the course you will have mastered the basics of safely operating an AR type rifle - shooting positions, grip, sight picture, sight alignment, trigger squeeze, clearing stoppages and magazine changes. You will learn how to take your weapon from a point of storage to effective rounds on target. This will be accomplished by learning how to store, retrieve, load, and employ your weapon efficiently and effectively as well as address lawful use of force.
Participants who complete this course with Cadre Machine will be eligible for a non-resident concealed weapons permit. These permits are valid for a term of 7 years in 36 states.
Due to the space and safety requirements needed to conduct these events the ranges may be up to a two hour drive from the city listed. Please keep this in mind when making lodging arrangements.
The duration of this course runs 8-10 hours.
All GORUCK Firearms Courses and Events utilize scenario based training which is incorporated into dry practice prior to any live fire. All participants will practice target identification and discrimination, movement, weapons manipulation, and other dynamic drills with the cadre and others. These drills will be facilitated with inert weapons enabling a safe and realistic training environment. Both pistols and rifles will be rendered inert with barrel/chamber blocking plugs. Further, each student must fully participate in dry practice prior to commencing live fire.
Pike may appear to be old and slow, but don't get confused: he's venerable and methodical. He matriculated from the old school and is completely unimpressed with your craft beer, hybrid vehicle and non .45 caliber pistol. Other than that he's completely easy to get along with.
