Training Courses

Tactical Shotgun

Learn to operate the shotgun safely and efficiently so it can be deployed as a defensive tool. Understand the shooting zones and the effective range of your shotgun.

We will discuss ammunition selection, shotgun “zones” and tactics.  You will apply marksmanship fundamentals to tactical shooting positions, from barricades and while moving.

We’re not knitting socks here!  This course is meant to teach you how to place effective fire on bad guys from a variety of situations and shooting positions.  You will learn to “run” the shotgun, effectively keeping it loaded during an engagement.  Keeping your shotgun loaded at all times is vital to its effectiveness in a fight.
