Sureshots carbine-level-III-course Carbine Level III Course - Progressive Combat Skills Training (PCST)
Carbine Level III Course

This training course will build on the fundamental principles learned in the Carbine Level I and Level II Courses.  Each shooter will exercise their advanced supported and unsupported firing positions and learn to maximize cover and concealment while creating improvised stable shooting platforms in non-standard shooting situations.  On the spot coaching, individual assessments and corrective action will be provided as needed by a seasoned military instructor. With a curriculum derived from military carbine training, shooters will be guided through weapons manipulation and immediate action drills designed to increase the shooter’s ability to handle malfunctions in-stride.  Each participant will leave with the knowledge, skills, and ability to rapidly establish a stable shooting platform and make first-round hits from multiple positions, ranges, and shooting situations.   We will also continue the training to enhance your ability to make rapid close and mid-range shots with a focus on accuracy and speed.
