AR Pistol Course Description:

The AR Pistol Shooting Methods (ARP) is a 1-day basic course designed to introduce the AR pistol as defensive firearm. In this course, students will become familiar with the characteristics, features, and controls of the most popular AR type pistol. They will learn the pros & cons to ownership, shooting and setup. Close range shooting will focus on how to shoot the AR pistol faster with improved recoil management. Standoff range shooting will focus on how to shoot the AR pistol accurately with improved trigger control. Students are exposed to a battery of drills designed to improve their shooting technique with both speed and accuracy standards. Subjects include overall capability, sling selection, recoil control, sling method and bag deployment. A major objective is the consistent ability to deliver rapid hits at close range then transition to accurate hits at standoff range. Additional subjects include accessory selection, pistol shooting method, bag/case selection, shooting positions, barricade use.
