Intro to Shotgun

Intro to Shotgun The shotgun is one of the most versatile and devastating self defense/sporting weapons available. As with all Intro classes we break the class into two parts. Friday evening will be the classroom portion where you will get familiarized with your unique shotgun. Then the following morning will be the live fire portion on the range.

Our class will give you the necessary skills to understand the function and versatility of the shotgun. We will cover stance, grip, loading/unloading, basic movement, shooting positions, round choice for different situations, bullet penetration and how to use the weapon for both close and distance threats. 

After successfully completing this class you will be able to enroll in any of the Practical Shotgun Courses! 

Rental Equipment: Rifle / Shotgun
