This 1-day course is designed for anyone interested in personal protection with a shotgun. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, dry-practice, and live fire drills, students will develop familiarization and proficiency with their shotgun.
Training topics include a Use-of-Force Overview, Patterning, Ammunition Selection, Modifications & Options, Ready Conditions, Stance, Mounting & Recoil Mitigation, Preparatory Gun Handling, Emergency & Tactical Loading, Combative Applications, and Self Patterning.
This class is ideal for home defense with your smoothbore. It is set up for the Remington 870/1100/1187 and Mossberg 500/590 platforms, but other defensive shotgun systems can be used effectively in this class.
