Defensive Rifle Techniques II

In-Person Instruction Available at The Florida Deep Woods Ranch Training Facility


Defensive Rifle Techniques II

A rifle or carbine is the ultimate force equalizer for almost any self-defense situation. Whether you’re deploying a rifle in your home, your vehicle, or elsewhere, rifles are almost always a better tool than a pistol.  This advanced course will help you take your defensive rifle skills to the next level by applying modern defensive shooting techniques in a 360-degree training environment.   

Responsible citizens and armed professionals who own a rifle should take this class. The Defensive Rifle II class provides an opportunity to learn and practice modern defensive shooting techniques in a 360-degree training environment doing realistic exercises and drills that are simply not possible elsewhere.    


If you would ALSO like to learn Defensive Pistol Techniques, sign up for the Defensive Firearms Techniques course (rather than the Rifle I course). The Defensive Firearms course includes both handgun and rifle training.

If you would like to rent a rifle for the class, simply write us a note on the registration page about rentals and we will get back to you.

If you are using your rifle for defensive purposes your training must be dedicated to learning how to fight with your weapon!

This class will cover:


All Defensive Rifle II classes include stress drills where you will be moving through a predetermined course of fire and engaging targets at distances as far as 300 yards. Although the participation in these drills is optional, it is highly recommended at this level since they are designed to test a student’s ability in a realistic environment under stress. Not only are they a great indication of your abilities, but they are also a lot of fun.

If students cannot safely keep up with the course tempo, the instructor staff may have students continue drills with gun clear and safe or sit out during the exercise for the safety of the group.
