4-hours including classroom and non-projectile range time.

What to bring?

All training equipment, will be provided for this class including a non-projectile AR-15. View the Armory. Please DO NOT bring any firearms or any ammunition to the class. If you have a favorite sling, and/or mag pouch that you want to train with feel free to bring it.
