9:00 AM - 5:30 PM
This course is designed to provide an introduction and build basic skills for the defensive shotgun. Many US households have a shotgun sitting in a closet with the intent of using it for self-defense. Learn to use the shotgun effectively to defend your home and family.
Topics covered include:
Shotgun Features and Ballistics – Loading, Unloading, and Carrying the Shotgun – Shotgun Marksmanship – Precision Shotgun Shooting – Shooting from Cover and Concealment
For this class, we recommend a 12-gauge pump or semiauto shotgun. Other gauges are fine. KSGs, Saigas, and other unique shotguns are welcome. AOWs, Shockwave and other “firearms” are also welcome. This is a course for using practical, reliable shotguns. If you have questions about your shotgun’s suitability for the course, just ask.
Taurus Judges and similar handguns are not allowed. Black powder/muzzleloading shotguns are not suitable for this course either.
Rental guns (pump-action 12 gauges) are available for an additional charge (use the “Admission with Rental” option at checkout). You must provide good-quality factory ammunition for use in rental guns.
