Carbine classes are not an option at the present time.
Not a newb just interested in brushing up on a few things.

Thanks for any input. :supergrin:

Glad you started this thread as I'm going thru the same thing myself. A carbine class for me is definitely an option for me, just not now. Hopefully once I'm ready I can find something that's not to "tactical"

The Magpul DVDs are good stuff. As far as a recommendation for a book? Give this a read:

Curious - have you already took a carbine class/formal training before or is training in your "mid to longterm" plans?

+1 Green Eyes Black Rifles and Magpul AOTTC series

I've always been impressed with Jerry Miculek's instructional pointers and Jerry Miculek the man. Gonna pick up his new practical rifle ar15 3-disc set from Brownells. It sounds very good.

In dvd: The Magpul videos are outstanding. Tactical Response’s Fighting Rifle is also very good. Thunder Ranch video’s are good but don’t have the depth or the level of intensity as the others. Getting material from multiple instructors will allow you to see things from different perspectives. You’ll be able to try different techniques and pick the ones that work for you.

In books: Green Eyes Black Rifles is very thorough with a lot of good info, from basic to advanced. Another good book is Combat Fundamentals by Jeff Gonzales. Jeff is a former SEAL and the book deals with use of pistols as well as AR carbines. It is very comprehensive.
Both books are formatted so you can study them like text books. Again, I feel it’s important to get as many different perspectives as you can and I recommend all the above.
That said, books and dvd’s don’t equal hands on training with a qualified instructor.

I have not taken any formal class/training. I have however had some informal training with a couple of LEO friends over the past couple of years. Both of them have had some formal training and one is former military.

I would like to take a carbine course soon sometime the end of this year. I live in Alabama so I will be looking for any fairly close to home, within a few hours drive.
