)will be teaching a battle rifle class near Boise May 21-23, 2010. The class will be held in Emmett, Idaho, about 30 miles from Boise. Please contact me for further information: benglandcom.2 AT gmail.com
This intense course will supplement the student’s existing self-defense capabilities with the ability to strike a solid decisive blow at distance through use of the full-caliber battle rifle. The carbine, shotgun and pistol all have their place, but the full power rifle is the Queen of Battle. Course includes practical marksmanship, ballistics, gunhandling, continuity of fire, malfunction clearance, mental conditioning for combat, and more. Suitable rifles in this category include but are not limited to the M-1 Garand, M1A, FN FAL, HK 91, etc. Iron or optic sights are acceptable. Bolt action rifles are permitted, but not recommended. This is not a competition oriented course but is focused primarily on the use of the semi-automatic .30 caliber battle rifle for defensive purposes and is equally suited to law enforcement and private citizens. Most of the training will be at distances of 0-100 yards, but firing will extend out to 300 yards if rifles and sights permit. Carbine-class rifles (AR-15, 5.56 NATO, 7.62x39) are welcome, but call if in doubt. Pistol transitions will be employed.
Course fee is $500. Ammunition requirements is 400 rounds rifle, 50 rounds pistol MINIMUM.
