COURSES

Defensive Shotgun

Duration 

Defensive use of the pump-action or semi-automatic shotgun requires a thorough understanding and appreciation of its capabilities, handling characteristics, and limits.

In this intensive course, students become familiar with proper shotgun manipulation in real world defensive situations. Instructors provide a complete understanding of the limits of the shotgun’s range based on types of ammunition used, guiding students through malfunction clearing and live fire drills.

Prerequisite 

This is an intermediate level class. The student needs to know and be able to demonstrate safe gun handling, weapon system familiarity, foundational marksmanship skills, and working from a holster. We strongly recommend Shotgun Orientation and Basic Practical Handgun Skills (Handgun 102) or their equivalents prior to taking this course.

Students failing to meet and maintain our safety requirements and/or who cannot meet and immediately demonstrate the minimum skills required for the specific class may be removed from training.
