Defensive Lever Action Rifle Course

Most of us own a lever action rifle and many of us learned to shoot with one. Other than killing a deer with it or shooting from a bench, have you ever actually trained with it? The lever action design has been around so long because it is reliable, rugged and easy to use. With some training, it can be a very effective tool for home defense.

This 8-hour course will train you how to use the lever action rifle or carbine as a defensive tool. You will learn how to load, fire and reload the weapon and use it effectively to defend your loved ones.


  • Firearms Safety: Four Firearms Safety Rules and defensive weapon storage in the home.
  • Operation: the cycle of firing will be explained
  • Loading & unloading: Administrative and tactical loading as well as carry modes.
  • Accessories: slings, optics/sights, lights, ammo storage options will be discussed.
  • Shot placement: An understanding of human anatomy and where to aim is critical for defensive use of a firearm.
  • Moving through rooms: Proper gun handling while moving through your home gives you better retention of the weapon and allows you to engage threats quickly.

COST: $200.00

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED: lever action rifle (either rifle or pistol caliber), eye and ear protection, sling (optional), cartridge holder on belt or gun. If you don't have looped shell holders, big pockets or a dump pouch will do. 200 rounds of ammunition.
