Rifleman: Close Quarters (3 Days)

This class has a Prerequisite: To sign up for this class, you must have taken a Valor Ridge Rifleman Class in the past.

Rifleman: Close Quarters is designed for those who are seeking to learn how to use the rifle inside structures and at close ranges.  It is a CQB course for those familiar with the term.  If you have never taken a commercial firearm training class,  this should NOT be your first training experience.  The course involves modules that include moving innocent bystanders, clearing rooms, clearing hallways, and manipulating the rifle while making decisions.
