Defensive AK

  Defensive AK  



Defensive AK rifle is designed to teach you to get the absolute best performance out of your AK 47/74 platform. Starting with the basics of zeroing and shooting the AK-47 platform, this course is suitable for all levels of experience from the novice to those very comfortable. You already know how to shoot an AK-47? Great. We will teach you to fight and defend yourself and those you love with it.

In this six hour class, we will cover the AK history, basic firearms safety, nomenclature, disassembly /assembly, cleaning, loading, and unloading. You will zero your rifle for 100 meters and engage targets from 10 to 100 meters. We will review the foundational marksmanship skills (grip, stance, sight picture/alignment, trigger manipulation and more), as well as reloading under stress and manipulations for malfunctions.

Then we will move into AK drills to squeeze every ounce of performance out of this versatile and plentiful carbine. With a strong emphasis on executing the fundamentals correctly and efficiently, we will teach you to apply your skills on demand in a fast paced and stressful environment.
