CLASS/COURSE: Tactical Carbine near Eugene & Springfield Oregon

MAP/LOCATION: Tactical Carbine near Eugene & Springfield Oregon


Tactical Carbine 1 Course near Eugene and Springfield Oregon is 8-hours of entry-level carbine/rifle training at a shooting range.

Tactical Carbine 1 (TC1) Course will teach you how to employ a carbine/rifle in an urban environment.

Whether you are a new shooter, combat veteran, or anything in between, there is something for you in the Tactical Carbine training class.

We begin by going over different style carbines, gear, optics, and accessories.

Our goal is to help you figure out the optimum set up for the environment you may find yourself in.

We will also advise you on what kinds of equipment to avoid.

After that, we begin a discussion on mindset and philosophies of use when employing a firearm for self-defense.

At that point, we move straight into our dry fire portion. During this time we go over proper weapons handling, loading/unloading, and malfunction clearing.

Once those skills are built we move into our live fire portion.

This section begins with establishing a zero and accuracy analysis.

Our qualified staff will give you individual guidance to ensure you have the tools for success during the duration of the class.

We then cover the different stances, methods of movement, shooting from kneeling/prone positions, shooting around cover, distance shooting drills, transitioning to your secondary weapon, and multi-target acquisition drills. As your pistol will be used minimally during the class, taking Tactical Handgun 1 prior is not required, but it is “strongly” encouraged.

You do not need an AR-15 style carbine/rifle for this class as we can accommodate whatever platform you bring. (AK, FAL, Tavor, Steyer AUG, Sig 556, Galil, HK, Ruger Mini 14/30, etc)

  1. Christian

    I was in the military for years as well as law enforcement after, I learned more from this 8-hour Tactical Carbine course than all my time in the military and law enforcement combined. Instructors were professional and very knowledgeable, with the ability to keep class engaged throughout the entire day.

  2. Eric

    One of the best and most comprehensive Carbine courses I have ever taken. Instructors were knowledgeable, professional and passionate. Safety was paramount throughout the entire day. Instructors were stern without being disrespectful or condescending.

  3. Curtis

    Going through the tactical carbine class with these amazing firearms instructors was so much fun! I now have a good knowledge base for tactically operating my firearms (specifically my carbine). I plan to take some of the other firearms instruction courses that they offer because I had such a positive experience! Thank you DFI and thank you Donovan Beard for the knowledge and the great experience!

  4. Ted

    Loved the class! Will take more classes when I can. The team did a great job on this Tactical Carbine course.

  5. Ryan

    I’ve taken many classes through Defensive Firearms Instruction and haven’t regretted a single penny that I’ve spent. I’ve taken everything from the tactical carbine and shotgun courses to their DPSST unarmed and armed security classes. They have a great instructor and he is able to explain everything in a way that’s easy for a beginner to understand. I would not hesitate to recommend DFI to anyone who is looking to increase their skill level or get their required certifications!

  6. Paul

    The wealth of knowledge between the instructors and their ability to pass it on in a respectful manner was incredible. The team of instructors ran like a well-oiled machine. I appreciated their safety and leadership while also being approachable. I look forward to taking more classes and I will definitely be recommending them.

  7. Benjamin

    Cold and rainy day on the range, however the instructor’s enthusiasm definitely helped to increase the morale and willingness to learn. Lot of information in a short amount of time. Definitely a course I would love to take again.

  8. Bryan

    I really enjoyed this course and I was absolutely impressed with the amount of information I was able to walk away with.
