I attended the combat carbine course with my 17 y/o son. As a current LEO and firearms instructor, I took a lot out of this class. It was a well run course and enjoyed learning new aspects of fighting with the carbine. MY son has had some previous training and his skill greatly improved because of this course. TDSA has continuously provided quality training and I will continue to seek my training there. Billy did an excellent job teaching this course to a broad variety of skill levels and experience. It is great to train with like minded shooters who were there to have a good time and enjoy themselves. Be prepaired to have a great time and work hard. But also, laugh a lot and enjoy the trip.

Combat Carbine May 7-8, 2022
Bottom line up front? My review of this class will probably only be for the ladies (so fellas- if you've always wanted your wife, mom, sister, daughter, niece, girlfriend to train beside you on a rifle: ask your ladies to read this and see if they might feel the same way as me!).
I've always been intimidated by rifles. They're bigger and heavier than handguns and even though I had an AR-15 built and I loved how easy it felt to shoot, I was still extremely uncomfortable handling it. It seemed to take so much upper body strength to aim it- let alone change mags. I persevered with training on it though because I heard so much about it being the preferred home defense weapon. As a woman who lives alone, home defense is my biggest concern. I'm already at a physical disadvantage against men and I need every advantage I can get.
That brings me to this class. By no means am I anywhere near proficient or polished now but I am comfortable and in love with it. Billy and Marshall taught me how to hold it with my body when loading it so not all the weight is on my arm, how to hold it in low ready, high ready, and contact ready, how to clear a jam, how to work that selector switch (that's the safety), how to put it into half loads, how to operate it from my left AND right hand, how to shoot from my knees or back, how to get back up safely, how to shoot on the move, and how to transition back to my handgun if I have a failure with my rifle. I'm in love with my rifle now and I feel SAFE using it. DSA instructors teach in such a way that you never feel dumb for asking questions and they have eternal patience. Please don't be dependent on someone else to protect you, ladies, and give yourself every advantage you can. DSA offers gift certificates, ladies only group classes, private lessons, you name it.

I just had the privilege of taking the Combat Carbine course. This course should be put into national legislation for anyone who buys a carbine. I was absolutely blown away by the amount of information we received and drills we got to do. Instructors Billy Smith and Marshall Luton work with students individually to help them work out all the bugs in manipulating the rifle. I personally loved the wounded shooter drills that we did. With one arm you learn how to load, charge, and shoot your rifle. Then you learn how to clear stoppages with one hand. There are timed challenges at the end of the class that are so much fun. The support side shooting was also eye opening, literally. I will definitely be taking this class again to improve my scores. Thank you guys for putting on these classes. This is the type of top level instruction every American gun owner needs including police and military. Iím amazed that Instructor Smith who trains Navy SEALS Army Rangers and other special forces units is even available to give civilians this kind of training.

Marshall was absolutely spot on. I walked in thinking this would be just another class, I already knew how to handle a handgun. Boy, was I wrong!

He broke us down to parade rest staring at grip, stance, sight alignment...the whole thing.

He did it in a very fun way while maintaining absolute professionalism AND while maintaining strict safety.

I highly recommend Marshall and TDSA for any shooting classes, and I look forward to progressing into his more advanced classes as well!

Thank you Marshall for sharing your lifetime accumulation of handgun skills with us. It was one of the best classroom days of my life. A.L.M.E. - T. Lang
