    1. Hector Reynoso

      Carbine fundamentals course is a great course for someone wanting to know how to operate their carbine. Valuable skills like zeroing your weapon system and proper sight picture and alignment are covered with great attention to detail. The instructors provided a very safe environment. Matt is very knowledgeable and gives clear and easy to follow lessons and instructions. Jacob and Robert were great with demonstrations and hands on instruction. I truly enjoyed the class and had blast. I am recommending this course to friends and family. This class is important for anyone who owns or wants to own and operate a carbine rifle.

    2. J. Mata

      The instruction was awesome and I had a blast. I have taken this course different times and always left with something new to my life. This is a great introductory class for the carbine.

      It had been years since I held a rifle, but since the death of my family at the hands of The Foot Clan I have dedicate myself to the way of the gunfighter. I decided on MAST Solutions when I saw Matt Brockman’s profile picture. Looking sexy and powerful. I knew I had to sign up. The only thing fundamental about this course are all the skills you will learn to restore you family honor. Do not be intimidated, you don’t have to be an “Operator” or have fancy gear to attend, just an open mind and good hand eye coordination to catch all the knowledge bombs that Matt will be dropping on you. Remember, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t teach him how to fish for a lifetime.

    4. LEONARDO (verified owner)

      If you are bored with standing still and shooting static targets at conventional ranges and feel you need a “challenge” …. then MAST Solutions Carbine Fundamentals course is the opportunity for you. Matt is the ideal instructor regarding safety and rifle technique. With a deep knowledge of the firearms industry and motivational style that you will take advantage of when you leave the course. It was a fantastic physical and mental workout! Do yourself a favor and take this course.

  • Carbine / AK Operator

    This course will focus on how to shoot and move accurately and tactically.  The carbine operator class is a two day course that will reinforce the fundamentals class, and add non-static components to effective gunfighting.  We will introduce movement and fighting platforms as well as additional gun handling skills that round out how to skillfully handle a lethal encounter.  This course is in part, bringing the physical aspect of fighting to the fundamentals aspect of safely running the gun and accurately engaging a target.  Digestion of what was learned in the Carbine Fundamentals class is paramount.  Drinking from a fire hose is still drinking but it’s not the recommended method for learning with firearms.  The mother of learning is repetition, and the repetitions need to occur, preferably in-between the fundamentals class and this course.

    Carbine Operator applies the fundamentals while offering the student “tactical” methods and options to perform, or to task prioritize while under some stress.  This course is a practical exercise conducted at a live-fire range.  The student will demonstrate movement while shooting the rifle standards.  Iron sights will be used as a primary sight system for shooting the standards. Optics will be used for the remainder of class if you choose.
