Welcome to Tactical Fitness Austin‘s comprehensive tutorial on firing a carbine correctly! In this video, Ron Grobman, guides you through the essential techniques needed to handle your carbine safely and effectively. Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn the basics or an experienced shooter aiming to refine your skills, Ron provides clear and practical instructions that will help you improve your shooting stance, grip, sight alignment, trigger control, and follow-through.

Let’s break down some key points on the Urban Carbine handling.

1. Grip and Stance: “We’re going to start with our strong hand… grip as high up on the rifle as possible… place the buttstock inside the shoulder pocket… create this little pocket underneath our dominant eye.”

2. Safety Manipulation: “As I present my rifle… I need to take my rifle off safe… I can hook my thumb underneath to put it back on safe… or use my index finger with an ambidextrous safety.”

3. Loading the Rifle: “Lock my bolt to the rear… inspect my rifle… acquire a side picture… insert the magazine… release the bolt… close the dust cover.”

4. Ready Positions: “The easiest position, the most common position is our low ready position… muzzle depressed below eyesight… bring the rifle up to my eye and create that cheek weld.”

5. Accounting for Mechanical Offset: “We want to make sure that when we’re close in, we can make the shot exactly where we want that bullet to go… aiming at the head at the seven-yard distance I’m going to hit about 2 inches low with my AR.”

6. Shooting Techniques: “We’re going to work on isolating our support hand… make sure we have a good grip with our support hand… we want that gun going straight back.”

Ron emphasizes the importance of proper technique and awareness in every step of handling a rifle. Whether it’s gripping, safety manipulation, loading, or shooting, attention to detail is crucial.

So, next time you’re at the range, remember Ron’s tips for a more controlled and accurate shooting experience. And if you’re looking to elevate your skills further, check out Tactical Fitness for Urban Carbine Rifle Fundamentals and Tavor Operator courses.
