CARBINE MASTERY 2-Day Course Richmond Rod & Gun Club Mon Oct 16, 2023 to Tue 17th 7:30 to 4:30 PM

Updated: Sep 19, 2023

This is reactive marksmanship-based training focused on biomechanics and efficient manipulations with the final goal of improving the efficiency of speed and accuracy in carbine/rifle shooting. Through a combination of lecture, group discussion, demonstration, and testing, each student will learn how to practically apply the concepts of Reactive Shooting with a semi/auto carbine/rifle. You will learn the principles of Reactive Shooting Science, how they correlate to carbine/rifle, and how to apply those principles on an individual basis. Each trainee will understand how to self-diagnose any deficiencies or errors using these principles and how to correct them immediately.


  • Fire Control Triangle – purposes, principles, and techniques of the shooting stance, grip, and trigger control for high-speed shooting while maintaining a high level of accuracy

  1. Using stance and grip to create passive control over the carbine/rifle

  2. Diagnostics of recovery after the shot

  3. Trigger control – purposes and principles

  • Grouping patterns and diagnostics – how to read your shooting group in dynamic close-range fire and how to discover and correct potential technical problems in recoil control or trigger pull.

  • Sight offset factor (point of aim, point of impact) for close-quarter engagements

  • Principles behind efficient multiple targets engagements

  • Ready positions and rapidly mounting/dismounting the rifle

  • Off-hand engagement 50 – 100 yards and midrange distances with multiple shots

  • Dynamic engagements and shooting on the move

  • Principles of support

  • Utilizing additional support for fast target engagements at medium distances and factors of influence in a realistic environment
