Defensive Shotgun
Cost - $100

This is a 6 hour class which focuses on improving shotgun skills for personal protection.  

Prerequisites: Basic shotgun AND handgun proficiency. What does that mean? You should already know the following:

  1. THE SAFETY RULES!!
  2. How to safely load and unload your shotgun and handgun while standing on the firing line.
  3. How to line up your sights and put them on the target.
  4. How to use a handgun holster and mag pouch.

All training will be done at the range.  This is a fun class that will teach the student what a truly versatile weapon system the shotgun can be. Running a shotgun to its full potential is a challenging effort but very rewarding in that it allows the operator the ability to defend with devastating force out to 50 yards.

  • Firing stance

Students are required to bring:

  • Ammunition:

    I suggest low-recoil (1200fps or less) for all shotgun ammunition. If you are bringing a semi-auto shotgun, be sure your ammo will run the gun. Ammo must be new, factory ammo. No reloads of any kind (it's a safety concern for the other people on the firing line).

    • 75 rounds of #6 to #8 birdshot.
    • 15 rounds of 00 buckshot
    • 25 rounds of slugs
    • 50 rounds of handgun ammo
  • Shotgun with a sling attached.
