Many myths surround the combat shotgun. This eight hour course will dispel these myths, replacing them with the correct knowledge and skills necessary to use the shotgun for self-defense or law enforcement duty.
In addition to learning the operation of the shotgun and correct shooting techniques, students will "pattern" their shotgun, understand the penetration potential of the various types of shotgun ammunition and practice shooting from behind cover and at multiple targets. Students will see the accuracy potential of the shotgun, along with understanding how shot patterning effects the tactical use of the shotgun in self defense and hostage situations.
The combat shotgun is one of the easiest weapons to learn to shoot, but also one of the hardest to truly master. In Advanced Defensive Shotgun we will train the student in the following areas of tactical shotgun use: long range shotgunning, moving targets, multiple targets, multiple hits, low light, use of horizontal and vertical cover both strong side and weak side, moving and shooting and man-on-man competitions. Program includes opportunity to challenge your skills against the FAS Shotgun Master Test (detailed under the Read More link below).
Prerequisites: our Defensive Shotgun course, or equivalent from another school. Students who are slightly built may want to consider purchasing a PAST recoil pad, due to the amount of shooting we do in this course. Student will be required to present a state-issued license to carry a concealed handgun, military or police identification or other form of background check prior to participation.
