The Introduction to Defensive Shotgun class is a one-day class developed for shooters wishing to learn how to use a shotgun for self-defense. A quality defensive shotgun can be an excellent choice for home and personal defense and is one of the most versatile firearms available, but they require different skills and knowledge compared to a rifle or pistol.
In this class students will learn the advantages and disadvantages of choosing the shotgun vs other weapons for personal and home defense. Shotgun selection, setup, and gear specific to defense shotgun use will be discussed in this class. We explain and demonstrate the proper selection of ammunition for the given defensive application. Students will be shown the various sighting systems that can be used on defensive shotguns and considerations for what will works best for them. Students will be taught the proper shooting stance, grip, sight alignment, presentation, and follow-through, as well as how to load, unload, and properly store a shotgun. Students will see how their chosen shotgun works by running it through various defensive shooting drills.
This course can be run with a reliable pump action or semi-auto shotgun in either 12 or 20 gauge. For the intro class students can run a bead, rifle-sighted, ghost ring, or red dot-equipped shotgun. The only things not permitted are mag fed or bullpup style shotguns as those require a different manual of arms.
