Carbine Foundation

In this 7-hour Carbine Foundation class you’ll work a mix of marksmanship drills designed to build a strong foundation in shooting fundamentals and gun handling skills. You’ll learn to hit targets at close to intermediate distances with speed, control and accuracy.

This class is geared to newer shooters who have a basic understanding of carbine shooting fundamentals, as well as more experienced shooters who’d like to refine and improve their skills. This is not a beginner class.

You’ll work with Gino Giliotti at the Lebanon County Police Combat Pistol Club in Lebanon County, PA, a natural outdoor environment that allows for effective training. Classes are capped at 5 students so you’ll receive individualized coaching that will accelerate your development and improve your carbine performance. You’ll learn techniques to identify problems that may be limiting your performance, the reasons why, and how to correct them so you can break through to a higher level of skill.

Courses of fire are tailored to the skill level of the shooter and are focused on real world civilian application. For performance and defensive utility, many drills are run from a shot timer to induce stress and get you acclimated to working under time constraints. Your results will be measurable. And you’ll come away with a course of action for incorporating regular dry fire into your practice.
