r3 defensive rifle

2 days     $450  FoF Ammo included 

2021 COURSE REVISIONS - Due to the ongoing interruption and pricing fluctuation of ammo we have made the following changes tp R3DH.  The round count will be reduced from 1000 to 500.  The 2-day course will be split  60/40 live-fire / Force-on-Force.  ALL FoF conversion kids, PPE and ammo are included in the price of tuition.


R3 Defensive Rifle is all about the realistic application of the modern rifle as a defensive tool of the armed citizen.   Just as in R3 Defensive Handgun we view the entire course through the lens of realistic, relevant, and recent concepts. The course highlights the superiority of the rifle for nearly all aspects of self-defense.  Depending on the range available, the course will cover threats from contact distance to several hundred yards. Defensive Rifle is adaptive to a wide variety of skill levels but all shooters should have a firm understanding of their rifle and basic marksmanship principles.  Day 1 of the class will focus on the live-fire use of the rifle while Day 2 will highlight a ballistics demonstration and a variety of Rifle Force-on-Force drills designed to reinforce the previously taught concepts.   FoF conversion kits, PPE and ammunition are included in the tuition.   The course is open enrollment but is also perfect for armed professionals to push their skills to the next level.
