Carbine / AK Operator

4 REVIEWS

$425.00

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.

***RANGE FEE IS $30.00 per day***

THE STUDENTS SHOULD BE COMFORTABLE AND FAMILIAR WITH THE FOLLOWING:

  • Weapon operating theory,
  • Loading procedures, unloading, and reloads
  • Grip, sight picture and trigger control
  • Iron sights/optics zeroing theory and application

      The best class to set you up for success. They push your limit using a carbine with different scenarios and malfunctions to the point where you feel very comfortable and almost second nature to manipulate the rifle. Once you get done with this course, you will be setup for their advanced courses as well which is a great added bonus.

    2. Jacob Mata

      Excellent course of instruction. I ran this course using an AK-47 and feel more confident with my accuracy. If you own a rifle, I encourage you to take a course of this caliber so you can grow and know your abilities with it. Every person who owns a carbine should take this course. This is not for a beginner. The instructors did an awesome job.

      Hands down the most fun I’ve had in a while. As a former infantryman I can say it all came back to me when Matt and his team ran us thru the drills. There are no swollen egos here, these guys know what they’re doing and they make it fun. This is the kind of thing you get your buddies together and make it an annual weekend of fun.

      I haven’t taken a course since 2013 and I’ve been wanting to get back into training to sharpen my skill set once again. Thus, I decided to sign up for Carbine Operator I. I have previously trained under big names like Chris Costa and Larry Vickers to name a few, so finding a quality program was priority. I had been searching in the local area of Houston for a while, and a friend mentioned MAST Solutions. I decided to sign up and try it out, and from the moment we got on range it was evident that Matthew and his group took their training seriously. First off, they were very welcoming to shooters of all disciplines and skill levels. They were able to accommodate and restructure the class to focus on those that were new to the environment and those that had experience with it. Not once did I feel I was being held back or left behind, and I was continually being pushed to shoot at my limit and beyond. The instruction was purposeful and concise.

      Despite taking a myriad of courses over the years, I was able to learn, adapt, and grow into a better, more proficient shooter. Don’t underestimate the importance of revisiting and refining your fundamentals. I highly recommend this course for shooters of all experience, and MAST Solutions as a quality training group. I look forward to trying out more classes and getting deeper into the curriculum they offer.
