201 - Combat Shotgun

This is an 8 hour course designed for shooters wanting to learn combat shotgun skills and how to fight and defend yourself with a shotgun. We do not teach target shooting in our defensive weapons courses. This class will focus on training for threat protection with a shotgun. We will discuss types of shotguns, pros and cons to each for personal protection, how they function, shotgun statistics, fears and myths, types of ammunition and their function and patterning of your shotgun. There will be a classroom portion to this course. On the range we will start with the basic fundamentals of stance, grip, sight alignment and trigger press. Dry fire and live fire drills, loading, unloading, malfunction and reload drills, nontraditional shooting positions. Targets will range from paper to steel and a combination of both.
