World famous trainer John Farnam is conducting a DTI Advanced Urban Rifle Course at the FAS Range in Onalaska, WA on the weekend of 27-28 May 22, and I hope you can join us once more!

In our ever-more unstable world, this training is extremely relevant.

This course is designed to prepare the defensive rifleman for the safe handling and use of this specialized weapon.

It has been said that by reducing necessities, we can afford luxuries; such is not the case in shooting. For only by learning the necessities�the fundamentals�can you afford the luxury of excellence. Almost anyone can �fire� a rifle and almost everyone who is capable of pointing their finger at an object can learn to shoot. However it takes determination, reliable equipment and most importantly instruction from a qualified teacher to become a competent rifle shooter.

The emphasis of this course is on defensive rifle handling and shooting skills. Most of this class is on short to medium ranges, rapid target-acquisition, improvised shooting positions, �snapshooting� and more deliberate fire. Defensive situations are always emergencies, so we must also put considerable emphasis on speed. The rifle must be mounted quickly, fired quickly (but accurately!) and the shooter must always automatically prepare to fire again quickly. We will not ignore shooting in excess of one hundred meters completely, but we will concentrate on the shorter ranges. There will be single and multiple targets and students will have an opportunity to practice rational decision making.

Military autoloaders are strongly recommended as most of the class is spent firing at multiple targets. Lever actions are marginally adequate as students with lever actions are often frustrated by the frequency they must reload. However we will not accept bolt guns, rimfire rifles, or slug-shooting shotguns. Slings are mandatory, as we will be running a hot range. High-magnification, high profile, close eye-relief scopes are not recommended. We do recommend military peep, iron sights or low-power, forward mounted scopes. The best rifle is a military autoloader, but as we indicated, some hunting rifles will do. Also plan to bring knee pads and binoculars. Students are advised that their rifles will see some strenuous, rugged use and may get scratched up a bit. Pretty guns are best left at home. You will need 400 rounds of rifle ammunition.

I’ve taken a few Farnam courses over the years. You certainly learn a lot, but he does spend a lot of time bloviating. Should be a good class, though!
