About this event

This course is designed to take the new shotgunner through the basics of operating the defensive shotgun. The morning session will start off with safety, basic manipulations and function, then move on to our Push/Pull method of recoil control. Using this unique method of recoil management, the student will be able to reduce felt recoil by nearly 50% and be able to fire follow-up shots with a 12 gauge pump shotgun as fast as most shooters can accurately fire their pistols.

Lunch will include a lecture on accessories and configurations

Afternoon will focus on reloading the gun from various types of ammunition carriers, as well as contextual information on the benefits and downsides of each.
