Dual Use Carbine Training
Instructor: Jack Leuba – Knights Armament Company, F2S Consulting
This class is oriented to the concept of the dual-role carbine in contemporary application. The dual-role carbine’s mission is to support the precision marksman’s tasks of providing accurate and effective fire on point targets in excess of 600 meters as well as the tasks related to the movement to and occupation of the firing position, to including countering close range direct threats, while in rural, urban, or mixed environments, during daylight and darkness, with and without the direct support of a spotter. Class content is balanced between precise shot placement at distances up to the maximum effective range of the platform and managing heavy recoil during close-range multiple shot applications.
This will be a limited enrollment class with a maximum of 12 students.

The system will generally employ 7.62mm/.308 Win (preferred system) or similar ammunition, though precision 5.56mm/.223 Rem based platforms and similar derivative ammunition platforms (6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC, .300 Blk etc.) may be utilized to varying degrees of success depending on mission. The application of the system as described will favor variable optics in the 1-6x, 1-8x, and 2.5-10x magnification ranges. 2.5-10x and higher magnification optics will generally be enhanced if a Mini Red Dot Sight is mounted in conjunction with the high magnification optic. All optics choices will be best supported with back-up sights that are located outside the line of sight (generally at a 30-45 degree offset) of the primary optic, to permit aiming should the primary optic be obscured, be overly magnified, or otherwise be unsuitable for immediate use.

I just realized that the Daytona 500 is the Sunday during the class - since the range is 30 miles from the race track nearby hotels may be filled up/ or charge shitty rates for all the toothless rednecks bound to be in town. I would advise everyone to stay south of the range down in the Lake Mary area. There is a Westin, Holiday Inn Express and Marriott in Lake Mary that have occupancy and relatively reasonable. It is a 20 minute drive to the range and has lots of dining/ entertainment options.
