Defensive Shotgun 2


12 Spots Available

COURSE DESCRIPTION: A stand alone course that supplements Defensive Shotgun 1 but does not require
a pre-requisite. Training starts with core skills to employ the shotgun in a home defense situation. New
drills are introduced that include multiple targets, shoot no-shoot exercises, use of cover, kneeling fire
and more. The course concludes with a realistic exercise that involves movement in four directions with
use of cover and reloading skills. The curriculum presented in this class is designed for the average home
owner and does not require a specialized shotgun or equipment.


SHOOT & SCOOT – A new drill that combines initial load, movement, reload and cognitive shot placement into a single course of fire. The drill is designed to replicate moving to new positions as a gunfight evolves. Shooters have to place the correct number of shots on a corresponding target at each station and can reload when they want; all while the clock keeps running.
FRIEND OR FOE – Target discrimination drill that requires the shooter to think for each presentation- shoot, don’t shoot or hold & cover with the shotgun. Each iteration has a different challenge. The drill mimics a variety of possible lethal encounters.
BI-LATERAL SHOULDER TRANSFER – What happens when available cover or concealment forces you to shoot from your non-primary shoulder. This drill teaches a safe and effect method to transfer from dominant to support side shoulder and engage targets from either side.
BARRICADE GRID OF FIRE– A course confirmation exercises where shooter move forwards, to the rear, left and right using barricades at each of six stations while engaging targets with either shoulder. The course imitates moving through a central hallway, using doorways on either side for cover
