Thank you for purchasing Home Defense Rifle: Volume 1. This project encompasses decades of training and real world combat experience into the core skills needed to defend your home battle space with a modern sporting rifle. Here’s how you maximize this training system-

Each of the 5 sessions has a primary video, student guide, and drill video (called Bonus Features).

  1. Start by quickly scanning the session overview and goals. Then watch the primary session video, maybe even watch it twice.

  2. Then go to the Drill Video(Bonus Features). Use a completely unloaded and cleared modern sporting rifle to follow along with the dry and live fire sessions in the drill video. If possible use the dry fire drills outlined in the Student Guide to practice the dry fire drills at least 1 more time before moving on to the next topic.

  3. Then, utilizing the live fire drills outlined in the Student Guide, go the range and conduct the live fire course of fire. Remember, as this video system is online, you can always go back to the corresponding Drill Video and review how to conduct any course of fire while at the range if you have internet access via a mobile device.

  4. Now that you’ve watched the Primary Video, the Drill Video, practiced the skills in dry fire, then practiced them in live fire, you’re all set to move on to the next session!

  5. At any point you need to review a skill or concept, re-watch the Primary Video on the topic.

Keep in mind that this system was designed to grow with you. There are over 60 live and dry fire drills in this video series and as you go along in your training, you can keep using these drills to grow in speed, accuracy, and effectiveness.

Train hard and stay safe!
