Carbine 1 – One Day – (Nashville, Indiana)

Jun 29 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm EDT

Revere’s Riders is excited to announce our inaugural event at Hoosier Hills Rifle and Pistol Club!

Overview: Attendees will experience shooting in multiple firing positions at varying distances and will learn modern defensive shooting skills on the AR platform. All firing in this course will be within 200 yards with a focus on the close quarters environment from contact to 50 yards. You will get a workout with all the skills needed to run the carbine from up close to 200 yards. We may work out to the battlesight zero of your carbine (200-300 yards) but the focus is on short range marksmanship.

Prerequisites: Suggested—Rifle 125 or similar class.

Estimated Ammunition Required: 250 rounds/day

Rifle Requirements: This course is conducted as an NRA America’s Rifle Challenge clinic and, as such, the AR-15 is an ideal rifle to bring. Any safe semi-automatic carbine can be used (Mini-14, AK-47, Tavor, etc.).

Required Equipment: Please review our suggestions on appropriate Rifle 223 equipment and plan to bring the following:

  • at least two (2) magazines for your carbine (more is better)
  • sling for your rifle (a 2-point adjustable sling is recommended although a 1-point sling will work fine if that is your preference; the US GI sling is probably not ideal for this event)
  • a way to take notes
  • hearing protection
  • eye protection
  • plenty of your preferred method of hydration (both plain water and something to replace electrolytes you will lose via sweating is ideal)
  • lunch (we won’t be leaving the range)
  • snacks

Optional Equipment: The following equipment is not required but may come in handy at the event:

  • case for your rifle
  • hat with a brim (to deflect flying hot brass)
  • knee/elbow pads (we may shoot from kneeling and other positions)
  • folding chair
  • sunscreen and/or bug spray

Topics of instruction will include the following:

  • Rules for safe gun handling & range rules
  • Carbine parts and operation & ammunition
  • Shooting Fundamentals
    • Firing Stance: Standing
    • Five steps to firing each shot
    • Zero rifles as required
  • Situational Awareness and Scanning
  • Rapid Magazine Changes (Tactical Reloads)
  • Short Range Marksmanship Techniques
    • Tailoring the five steps to firing each shot to the close quarters environment
    • Controlled Pairs
    • Recoil Management
  • Clearing Malfunctions/Stoppages
    • Emergency/Speed Reloads
    • Failure to Fire
    • Failure to Eject
    • Double Feed
  • Special Subjects (most one-day clinics will cover only a few of these — two day clinics will cover most or all)
    • Zeroing Carbines & Rifles
    • Carbine Trajectory and Zero Issues
    • Barricades
    • Movement
    • Kneeling Position
    • Prone Position
    • Use of the sling to support shooting stability
    • Natural Point of Aim
    • Firing from retention
    • Field Stripping & Cleaning the AR-15
  • Classic WW2 Carbine Qualifier
  • Revere’s Riders Carbine Skills Test

This class is moderately physically demanding. We will be on our feet much of the day, moving between various positions on the range. We will be shooting from different positions throughout the day.

Please contact the event director if you intend to bring a different type of firearm other than an AR-15 or similar carbine; we can probably accommodate learning on your preferred platform but want to ensure you will not be frustrated.

The Spirit of 1776

Picking up where “The Midnight Ride” concludes, the Spirit of 1776 traces the first full year of the American war for independence. From the high point of the Evacuation of Boston to the lows of early winter of 1776, follow the Continental Army as they are forced to flee across New York and New Jersey. Learn about the nearly insurmountable challenges they faced and the hope, faith and daring that pulled Victory out of certain defeat.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to face down a huge amphibious armada invading New York City, shiver around a campfire reading about “summer soldiers and sunshine patriots,” or gamble it all on a desperate crossing of the Delaware River for “Liberty or Death” then you need to hear the Spirit of 1776.

This exciting tale will be woven throughout the day’s marksmanship events.
