Welcome to the Intermediate Defensive Rifle (IDR) course from InSights Training Center. The intent of this class is two-fold; first to increase the shooter’s abilities at Close Quarters Marksmanship. And, second to make the shooter a total “rifleman” with the ability to shoot to the full-potential of his or her rifle.

Learning and applying single-man tactics taught in General Defensive Rifle (GDR) is a prerequisite for IDR, as shooters continue to advance their skills and begin learning live-fire room clearing drills before advancing to two-man tactics and drills as the class continues. As always, InSights instructors put safety first, and no shooter will be asked to do things they are not capable of. InSights Training Center courses will challenge you, not break you!

Students spend significant time in the ranges of 0–50 meters, mastering speed and accuracy while using available cover and movement as is required in Urban Combat situations. This portion is fast moving, and the constantly changing drills and environment will challenge the shooter’s mental and physical abilities.

The Rifleman portion of the course is spent examining and testing the shooter’s abilities at 100–600 meters. This is the chance to discover the maximum capabilities of not only your own shooting skills, but your equipments capabilities as well.
