Combat Shotgun – 2017 TBA

Length: 1 Day

Cost:  $200

Course Description

The shotgun is the defensive tool of choice for many because of its high hit probability and general ease of use. This one day Combat Shotgun will help you get the most out of your pump action or semi auto shotgun. We will discuss weapon and ammunition selection, patterning and zeroing, reloading, ammunition management.  You will engage single and multiple threats using the revolutionary Jedburgh Target System.

Notes on gear: You do not need to go out and buy body armor, tactical vests and holsters to take this course.  Please have the ability to carry on your body 20 shells for your Combat Shotgun.  This will be all you need to train with.

If you are an armed professional who utilizes certain tactical gear during the course of your duties, by all means please bring it with you and train with it.  Not all of the training will require your kit so try to have some pouches to train “slick”.
