Home Defense Shotgun

The objective of this course is to cover the topics most relevant to the use of the shotgun as a tool of home defense, including:

  • Selection/configuration of the defensive shotgun

  • Proper ammunition selection

  • Reliable loading and operation of the shotgun

  • Shooting technique and recoil management

  • Patterning

By the end of the course, students will demonstrate competence in the handling, loading, and rapid, accurate use of the shotgun at common home defense distances. At the end of the day students will shoot a shotgun qualification course. 

Requirements: Students will need 200 round of birdshot and 25 rounds of buckshot (10 of which should be premium such as Federal Flight Control), and all the usual stuff you'd take for a day on the range (eye protection, ear protection, water, snacks, etc.) If you need a loaner shotgun or ammo, please contact us and let us know! Both can be provided for a very reasonable cost.
