Carbine/Pistol Transition Class

Carbine/Pistol Transition Class

Prerequisite: AR-15 Class and a Pistol Class or Military/LE

Knowing when to transition from a carbine to a pistol is another of those subjective determinations.
The rule of thumb is 25 yards. Outside of 25 yards’ pistol accuracy is considered generally marginal and there is enough time to reload the rifle.
Inside 25 yards the threat is more immediate and there is little or no time to work the rifle and transitioning to a working and loaded weapon is recommended.
If you want to become proficient with your carbine we can help. Most shooting exercises are conducted within 50 yards with emphasis on close quarter battle. As the day progresses you will become more confident with your ability to transition from your carbine to your pistol.
