San Antonio Firearms Training Basic Carbine Class is a 4 hour course that will consist of both classroom and live fire training. The weapon will be fired at distances from 7-100 yards. This class is designed to familiarize the shooter with the AR-15 platform, and to provide the student with a solid skill set to be built upon in continued training after the conclusion of the class.


This class differs from the Block 1 Carbine Course in that it is structured for the shooter who is unfamilar with the basic operation of the carbine while the Block 1 Carbine Course is designed for those who already have a working knowledge of the Carbine, but want to increase their skill with the weapon system.  The Basic Carbine Course is 4 hours long and approximately 1/2 classroom and 1/2 range time while the Defensive Carbine Block 1 is a full 6 hours of range time.
