Home Defense Rifle/Shotgun


This is being offered as a private course this year

This is a one  day course designed for civilian or LE personnel which focuses on the use of the shotgun in defense of one's home.  After a brief refresher on defensive shotgun techniques, this course concentrates on close quarters use of the shotgun including:  selection of weapon, selection of shot, house clearing and room clearing procedures, weapon retention,  and use of the shotgun as a striking weapon.  90% of the ammunition used  in this course will be light target loads.  Any gauge shotgun is acceptable, as are hunting or tactical shotguns.  The focus is to train  the home owner on whatever weapon is available, not just tactical  weapons.  Handguns are optional as a secondary weapon, so long as the  student has been through Basic Handgun.
