Beginner AR15 Courses?

Looking to take an entrance level AR15 course this summer.

Did a cursory Google search for Md/De area beginner AR15 courses and did not find any courses scheduled.

If anyone has any leads on available courses for June/ July/ August, please post up or pm me.

Thank you.

You want a technical course in building a rifle or a tactical/practical shooting course for the AR15?

Or basic rifle marksmanship and accurate shooting?

If shooting, then I'd recommend Green Ops Carbine I (or one of their 4 hour clinics to start) or FPF Training "Minuteman Rifle Course". Both are in Northern Virginia.

I'd say start with an Appleseed course and then progress from there to an AR specific course.

ARPC does a beginners carbine course. Check us out we shoot at the AGC.

https://arlingtonrpc.org/

I have also taken a carbine course with Center mass training and a long range course with peacemaker in WV.

Appleseed shoots are a good time, and you will learn a lot about the fundamentals of marksmanship.

Appleseed would certainly be a good fit (though I am biased).

Our next Maryland centerfire event is at Sanners in Lexington Park June 8-9, 2019. But we do have loaner AR-style 22s for events at the rimfire only Annapolis events - have one in 2 weeks plus others throughout the summer. In September we will have some other centerfire events at AGC and Sanners and in October a 200yd centerfire event on the Eastern Shore. Happy to provide more info.
