Tactical Shotgun Level I

This course will begin to develop tactical knowledge and tactical shotgun skills. It will teach you the fundamental principles, skills and tactics for close to mid-range tactical shot-gunning. Each shooter will learn the skills used in tactical shotgun shooting and their practical applications. We will enhance your ability to operate and keep your shotgun running through focused fundamentals, on the spot coaching, individual assessments and corrective action as needed by a seasoned military instructor. You will learn your individual weapon’s performance characteristics and your personal capability to make precision shots with both slugs and buckshot, as well as the limitations of shotgun ammunition. With a curriculum derived from military training and experience, shooters will be guided through weapons manipulation drills designed to increase comfort level, efficiency, and confidence in tactical shotgun shooting.
