Course Q200 – Close Quarter Marksmanship is a one-day (8 hour) course of intermediate instruction that combines pistol and carbine training with emphasis on how they are each employed together. By enforcing solid fundamentals, this class is perfectly suited for novice students and seasoned shooters alike. This is a fighting class that teaches extreme marksmanship with carbines and pistols in a close combat setting.
Students in this course participate in guided instruction, practical exercises, as well as live-fire examinations; all while wearing load-bearing equipment. Tactics and techniques covered include safe employment, fighting stance, shooting from cover, shooting while moving, sidearm transitions, tactical reloading, and marksmanship at intermediate distances. The end-state of the course for the student is functional proficiency with both the carbine and pistol in a urbanized environment.
Novice shooters will benefit from guided instruction by seasoned professionals while experienced shooters will benefit equally from the reinforcement of fundamentals and the structured format of live-fire practice drills. Through the duration of its one-day format, the course begins with manipulation and handling drills that progressively add speed, distance, and complexity. The pace of the course is timed for mastery of the carbine and pistol at short range. At the end of the course, students will shoot more quickly and with more accuracy than many believe possible.
