Defensive Shotgun (101)
This four (4) hour class focuses on the pump action shotgun and its time-tested reliability and effectiveness as a tool for self-defense. This course explains the operation of the shotgun, advantages and disadvantages when using it for self-defense, shotgun manipulations, and more. We then move to the range to conduct loading, unloading, malfunctions drills, and live-fire drills.
This class is for the shooter who has never fired a shotgun or is new to using a shotgun for self-defense. You will learn a number of important shooting skills and shotgun manipulations to build upon in future classes.
Students should bring a shotgun, approximately 75 rounds of slug ammunition, eye and ear protection. A reliable sling is required for this class.
