2 Days (16 Hours)
(*No Green Tip Ammo*)
The Recce Carbine program of instruction is built around a 14.5-16” General Purpose Carbine equipped with a Low Power Variable Optic such as 1-4x, 1-6x, or 1-8x (ACOG and/or RDS + Magnifier is permitted), without a bipod, firing non-match ammunition (FMJ). Students start by learning to deliver the maximum accuracy of their system at speed, before moving on to modules that focus on alternate positions, advanced sling techniques, moving target engagements, and runs through the Ridgeline Assault Course.
Students will progressively be introduced to subjects such as utilizing cover and barricades, advanced sling techniques and alternate shooting positions. Utilizing paper, steel target arrays and moving targets, shooters will be challenged to engage multiple targets from varying positions while still performing fundamental tasks at a high level of competence.

PREREQUISITE / NEXT COURSE:
Prerequisite: This is a Skills Enhancement course. Ridgeline skills enhancement courses have been designed to place shooters in new positions, challenge durability of position and fundamentals, and improve speed and marksmanship. These courses provide less step by step instruction on basic skills with a higher emphasis on coaching to push boundaries and overcome obstacles so the student may achieve new levels of performance. This is not an entry level course. Safe handling skills, such as being able to safely load, unload, reload, clear malfunctions and present a carbine safely are expected in this course. General safe firearms handling is expected of all students.
Next Course: If you are not confident in meeting the prerequisite for this course check out our Combative Carbine course to build the skills necessary to join this class. Following graduation of this course students should consider Ridgeline’s other Skill Enhancement carbine courses of CQC Carbine and Scoped Carbine.
