Developmental Drill: Redback One Carbine Shooting Standards

226241_223552374321710_393510_nDeveloped in 2011 by instructors at Redback One, the Carbine Shooting Standards (CSS) was designed to be used as a 8-Stage diagnostic self-test for students before classes, then again at the end to demonstrate improvement or applied lessons. Students are also required to perform the CSS using a modified IDPA target and attain a 80% Go/No-Go prior to starting Redback One’s advanced coursework. As an alternative for your use, a 6″ (head/pelvis zone) and 8″ (chest zone) paper plate or bullseye-type target can also be used.
