Overview

The Carbine Pipeline in our Total Shooter Program is 1-3 days in length and can be taken all at once or split into individual classes taken over time depending on your preference or schedule. Carbine 1 is the first day of our program and addresses the fundamentals of carbine marksmanship and weapon handling in a challenging and fun way for everyone. Carbine 1 sets a strong base for your continued shooting career outside class, and for the more advanced weapon manipulations, drills, and skills taught in Carbine 2 and Carbine 3. Carbine 1 with Vortex Edge is more advanced than others involving only a static firing line. We incorporate a relatively significant amount of dynamic moving and shooting. Our core classes are progressive, so if you complete fewer than the full three days, you can always come back later and pick up where you left off to finish your experience and training.


Topics Covered:

  • External Ballistics and Zeroing
  • Equipment setup – Slings, Optics, Magazines and More
  • Basic Rifle Marksmanship
  • Efficiently Manipulating the Carbine and its Controls
  • Position shooting: Standing, Kneeling, Prone
  • Presentations, Reloads, Multiple Shots on Target and Recoil Management
  • Mounting and Presenting the Rifle
  • Reloads and Magazine Exchanges
  • Carbine Training Philosophy and Future Skillset Development
  • Movement

What to Know Before You Get Here:

  • This class takes place on one of our indoor tactical shooting ranges in our state-of-the-art shooting facility in Barneveld, WI.
  • Lunch will be provided from a local restaurant.

We request that all students do an honest self-evaluation of experience and skill level. Brand new shooters or those unsure with their abilities will feel overwhelmed jumping into a class like Carbine 1, which we have seen lead to safety issues and overall, a lack of having fun. If that’s you, we would love to see you in one of our half-day "Intro to Carbine" courses! Taking one of these classes will set the stage perfectly to come into Carbine 1 and beyond.

Required Equipment:
  • Semi-Automatic Carbine
  • Low Power Variable Optic or Red Dot Highly Suggested
  • Sling for Carbine
  • 3 Magazines
  • Magazine Pouch/Holder (At least one)
  • Appropriate Range Attire (Pants, Close-Toed Shoes, Shooting Belt)
  • Appropriate Ear and Eye Protection
  • 300 Rounds of Rifle Ammo
  • No Steel Core or Armor-Piercing Rounds Allowed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Carbine classes out here! The entire experience was absolutely awesome from start to finish. Everyone at the Vortex facility makes you feel like family. The instructors were very thorough and offered positive constructive criticism to everyone taking the class. I really appreciated the knowledge and experience they brought to the class. Without a doubt, I would recommend the Vortex Edge courses to anyone interested. I will most definitely be taking some more classes here and can’t wait to get back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Instructors This was my first rifle course, and I was blown away by the professionality and helpfulness of the instructors. Small class size (Maybe 8 students), and 6 instructors. There was always someone watching you shoot, and were prompt to provide helpful feedback to make you a better shooter. Class started with basics such as zeroing, and by the end of the day we were doing movement and cadence drills. Amazing experience and I will be back to finish the carbine series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORTH THE TRIP A group of my co workers and myself took this training course and I will say it was a blast. We got to really dial in our rifles and then put them to work. The instructors we great and were able to get everyone shooting accurately even some of our brand new shooters. I am looking forward to trying their other offerings.
