Introduction to Defensive Shotgun (100)

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 several important shooting skills and shotgun manipulations to build upon in future classes.

Required Equipment: Students should bring a 12 gauge shotgun, approximately 40 rounds of slug ammunition, eye, and ear protection.
