Urban Rifle Level 1 is the 4th course I have completed at DSA, and my 5th is upcoming in November. As a former flight instructor, it is easy to attest to the critical importance of recurring training. Marshall and the team at DSA offer a unique blend of the highest quality training, professionalism, challenge, and uncompromising safety, within a family atmosphere that makes learning enjoyable. This is hard to describe, but easy to understand once you’ve completed your first course.

In my opinion, Urban Rifle Level 1 should be a requirement for all AR-15 owners. You begin this course by learning how the AR-15 operates as well as how to properly disassemble, maintain, and reassemble your rifle. These skills are critical to understand before you move on to learning the safe handling and operation of the rifle.

During day 1 the course transitions from the classroom to the range where safety always comes first. Please be prepared for swift, firm correction when any unsafe behavior is observed. The balance of day 1 sets the table for day 2. You are taught how to safely handle your rifle, properly zero your optic at various distances, and how to shoot accurately (which is different than precisely).

Don’t let the name of this course fool you. “Level 1” sounds “basic” however you’ll quickly find your abilities and skills challenged during this class. Both mind and body are taught how to shoot effectively from various firing positions during several different drills. Pain relievers may be a good idea for some 😉. You will conclude this course with skills, abilities and confidence that exceed expectations. Check out the course description at dsaok.com for a comprehensive list of the skills taught.

What makes DSA special is the people. Marshall, Billy, and the entire team are masters at their craft and genuinely care for their students. Take a few minutes to read their qualifications on the “instructors” page at dsaok.com. Impressive is an understatement. When you attend any DSA course you are struck by how many students have taken multiple courses and travel great distances to do so. The loyalty of DSA students is a testament to the quality of the organization. I feel fortunate to be able to train with what I believe to be the best in the business anywhere.
