Length: 1 Day
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.

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”.
