About the Course
The role of the Individual Automatic Rifleman (IAR) is to lay down a high volume of suppressive cover fire against individual and area targets for their team during an engagement from various fixed positions and on the move. Urban operations present significant operational concerns, such as near and far objective collateral risk. The Urban Objective Rifleman course trains operators in novel solutions and methods that address the concerns of collateral risk. The UOR course will emphasize advanced trigger control management, burst vs. controlled fire, rapid target engagement, bipod deployment, accuracy and ammo management, equipment selection.
Operators will be trained to excel in the requisite skills to deliver accurate sustained saturated fire to intermediate distances (medium engagement range) against multiple targets.
Students will advance through a series of dynamic range instruction, progressively challenging drills, confidence building courses and individual evaluation.
Operators of lawfully possessed select fire M-16/M-4's, binary triggers, forced reset triggers and similar specialty type triggers are encouraged to take this course.
Ammunition: 2000 rds of rifle ammunition
Equipment requirements: We recomend M-4 pattern rifles in 5.56 with a attached bipod. Select fire capable rifles and specialty type triggers are optional. Battle rifle calibers will not be permitted.
