Advanced level shooters will find this class to be an excellent review of their existing skills & experience new drills and techniques. This class is intended to instill in students the mindset and skills to allow them to use their carbine as a defensive tool in a deadly force encounter. Students will come away from this class with a better understanding of their AK, and a higher level of confidence in their ability to effective operate and wield it. It is encouraged to run this class with the gear you would normally have in home defense or self defense situation. This is also an opportunity to work on any areas that the shooter themselves would like to request. PREREQUISITES: Students should know and be able to perform all aspects of safe firearm handing.
