A 2 day combination course of our Practical Shotgun and Critical Shotgun courses. Begins as an entry-level course where students are familiarized with their shotguns. This class is geared toward those with training outside the basic classes from novice to the intermediate shooter, looking to tune up some skills. Even at this early level, we expect students to have an understanding of various methods of reloading, weapon manipulation and most importantly muzzle awareness and safety.
From there, this course will explore the use of slugs and proper zeros of irons and red dots sights, and extend range use of buckshot. As well as shooting on the move and alternate firing positions and target transitions and shooting on the move.
