Essential Carbine Employment (ECE) with Steve Fisher

November 5, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm

This one-day carbine course is an entry-level course where students are familiarized with their rifles. An excellent program for the new shooter and even better for the seasoned enthusiast to polish their fundamentals. It is CRITICAL that students come to class with a zero’d carbine. As this is a one-day course we need to hit the ground running. If you are unsure of how to accomplish zeroing your gun please contact training@howellsgunshop.com for assistance prior to class.


Essential Carbine Employment will thoroughly cover:

  • Proper choice and placement of gear
  • Different optics and accessories
  • Effective shooting stance
  • Proper weapon grip
  • Recoil control
  • Sight alignment
  • Sight picture using iron sights and electronic optics
  • Proper zero and confirmation of them.  (Range dependent on distance)
  • Use of the sling for supported shooting
  • Use of body supported shooting positions
  • Trigger control
  • Speed reloads
  • Tactical reloads
  • Malfunctions of the rifle
  • Different shooting positions

Required Equipment:

  • A functional and practical carbine or battle rifle chambered in 5.56×45, 5.45×39, 300 Blackout, 7.62×39, 7.62×51.
  • If available, a spare weapon system is also an excellent idea.
  • A sling for the rifle.
  • Hearing Protection, electronic is preferred.
  • Wrap around style eye protection.
  • If available, a spare weapon system is also an excellent idea.
  • A minimum of 500 rounds of rifle ammunition.
