This course covers the effective use of a carbine in a relatively close fight (5’ to 25 yds). While marksmanship will be stressed, the main focus of this course is to get you familiar with the tactics, techniques & procedures for fighting with your weapon. We will cover everything from basic manipulations to working as a team & the proper use of cover. There will be some timed & scored drills near the end of class.
Any fighting rifle is welcome in this course. AR’s, AK’s, Ruger Mini’s of all configurations are welcome & we’ve even had someone with a .357 lever gun. She had to work a little harder than the rest of us, but still did a very good job & learned a lot about herself & her weapon.

We have a little less than a month to go & I have a little update. If you’ve taken any OPS classes before you can get the returning student pricing listed below.
Surgical Speed Shooting- $145-Sat only or $270 for Sat & Sun
Combat Revolver- $140
The new student prices are outstanding for this level of training but the returning student rate is even better. All you have to do is note something to the effect of “returning student” on the application or otherwise let us know that you’ve trained with OPS in the past & you’re in.
