Defensive / Tactical Shotgun

      The shotgun is one of the most powerful, versitile, and underutilized tools available to law enforcement officers and citizens alike.
      This course begins in the classroom with a focus on both the pump and semi-automatic shotguns, ammunition, pattern zones, combat firing techniques, and the shotgun as a multi-purpose (lethal / less lethal) launching platform.
      Range work includes determining the shotgun's pattern, firing on the move, multiple threats, decision making, select loading, speed reloading techniques, transitioning to the handgun, one-hand malfunction clearing, identifying threats, shooting in subdued light, and more.
      Defensive Shotgun is a 20 hour course delivered over 2 consecutive days. Attend this course and gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to properly and effectively utilize this most versatile of firearms.
