Shotguns are currently been used less these days and are been switched out for carbine rifles due to active shooter situations occurring more frequently.
Some departments still carry both in patrol vehicles and are using these more for deploying less lethal devices.
This course will teach the operator various ways to manipulate their shotgun and show them the advantages and limitations in an urban environment.
We will test various loads from 00 buck to slugs and see how they perform and pattern at different distances.
Students will shoot around barricades and obstacles in multiple shooting positions and be shown various lighting techniques, with or without weapon mounted lights attached.
This is a great course for honing your skills or evaluating your current equipment. We incorporate endurance live fire exercises which allows for the operator to evaluate his own ability in a humbling way. We are confident that each candidate will walk away having learnt something new from this class.
