What is a Pistol Caliber Carbine?

A Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) is a rifle that shoots ammo with the same caliber as a handgun.  These weapons are becoming increasingly popular among gun enthusiasts and shooting sports competitors alike, due to their accessibility and versatility.  They are commonly used in competitions such as USPSA or IDPA matches and have proven to be a viable option for home defense.


Why dry fire?

Dry firing is an essential aspect of training for any firearm, including the PCC.  It refers to practicing weapon manipulation techniques without live ammunition, using only a dummy round or snap-cap.  This allows for safe and repetitive training, which can help improve muscle memory, speed, and accuracy.


Manipulation techniques

Proper manipulation of the PCC is crucial to its performance and your success as a shooter.  This course will cover various techniques such as how to properly shoulder the weapon, maintain sight alignment and trigger control.  Additionally, you'll learn how to properly use your sling for stability and retention, as well as different methods for loading and unloading the PCC.


Stoppage drills

One of the most important aspects of weapon manipulation is knowing how to handle stoppages efficiently.  In this course, you'll learn how to quickly identify and clear common stoppages that may occur with a PCC.  This includes drills for clearing malfunctions such as failure to fire, failure to extract, and double feeds.
