The shotgun is one of the most misunderstood weapon systems, but also one of the most versatile.  While many people have used a shotgun to hunt, or to shoot cans, proper utilization in a defensive situation is much different.  Ammunition selection, how to change ammunition mid fight, strengths and limitations, extra shell placement, are all things that must be considered to get the most out of the weapon.  We will cover various techniques for deploying the shotgun in different scenarios to allow the operator to get the most out of this tool.
If you are considering having a shotgun as part of your home defense plan, or you are a patrol officer who wants to get better at its utilization, this is a vital course for you.  Regardless of how many rounds you have fired at your local range or while hunting, you will learn how to use your shotgun in real world situations.

Equipment Required:

If you do not have a weapon, you can use one of ours (simply pay for the ammunition).

If you have your own tactical shotgun (pump or automatic), please bring it along with a method to carry extra shells (Side saddle preferred… stock saddle, sling strap, belt pouch, etc are all fine).

You will need approximately 50 rounds of number 7 or 8 birdshot, 10 rounds of 00 buckshot, and 5 rounds of slugs.

All participants should bring ear and eye protection and dress appropriately for the weather.
