Event description

Description

This course is designed to provide the newly graduated officer with the basic skills necessary to properly store, transport and utilize their shotgun or a refresher for veteran officers. Topics covered will include operation of the shotgun, ammunition types and their usage, and proper deployment techniques. The first half of the class is conducted in the classroom setting, and the second half of the day is spent on the range conducting live fire exercises. Students are encouraged to bring their department’s issued shotgun or their own acceptable tactical shotgun; however the academy has some shotguns on hand for training purposes. The student is also required to bring his/her duty belt including handgun, as well as the type of protective vest that they wear at work. Students must bring their own ammunition, which should include at a minimum 50 rounds of handgun ammunition, 15 rounds of buckshot, 15 rounds of slug and 50 rounds of birdshot. The academy no longer provides ammunition for this course! For those who bring their own weapons, the only acceptable gauge will be 12 gauge, and all shotguns must be pump action or pump action capable.
