A multi-day instructional program, sounds exactly like a carbine class. Now there are 1 day, 2 day and 3 day carbine classes. This is the first time I have ever heard them called schools. Maybe "course" is a better word. I tend to think of school as a multi month sort of thing.
Do you see how comparing the 2 firearms performance during a carbine course doesn't make sense?
