Fighting Shotgun Seminar

Fighting Shotgun Seminar

Focus:  Any person who may legally possess or carry a firearm.

Length:  8-hours

The shotgun is one of the most effective weapons you may possess.  No other shoulder fired weapon can put more rounds downrange with a higher hit probability and greater lethality than a shotgun.  It is also one of the most misunderstood.  We are regularly told this seminar provides the clearest instruction shooters have ever received on the function and tactical employment of the fighting shotgun—even very experienced shotgunners have commented on how much they learned about the use of the combat shotgun.

This is not an introductory course, but rather a comprehensive eight-hours of shooting and hitting under realistic conditions.  We address the reality of not having unlimited ammunition--and being in close where distances are measured in steps, often well within 15 yards of the threat.  This means  survival is measured in tenths of a second, and requires employment methods that support instantly hitting the Threat as soon as the threat is identified.  Additionally, tactical employment of the shotgun requires efficient and effective use of the barricade for protection while engaging the suspect, and the ability to quickly, smoothly, and efficiently transition to your handgun in an emergency.

Like all of our seminars, we provide you the all important understanding of "when" to press the trigger, as well as the points of articulation you will need when the police arrive.  Knowing what to say, and what not to say, will make a huge difference in how you experience the criminal justice system following a shooting.

Course Topics:

  • Laws and Articulation of Deadly Force
  • Fire Discipline Theory
  • Retention of the Shotgun
  • Movement and Fire
  • Malfunction Drills
  • Transitioning to the Handgun

Developed from the street "in," NOT from the live-fire range "out."

This is contextually-correct training at its highest--without gaming and wishful thinking.  This is about hitting people with bullets who need to be hit RIGHT NOW, while avoiding being shot yourself.  If you do it in your home or on the street, then it must be practiced in training.  If something is too dangerous to do in training, then you shouldn't do it anywhere.  We bring street reality and functionality "in" to the live-fire range training for your benefit.

This training is not simply to familiarize you with the shotgun.  It is to designed to create an outstanding ability to put rounds on target in sudden-conflict situations, master the recoil, and to utilize the shotgun in the manner in which it is intended--to provide overwhelming deadly force response capabilities in those situations where the metal meets the meat, and you must come out on top.
