Basic Practical Shotgun Class
January 7, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$150
Many believe the shotgun is the prime home defense weapon, yet most newer shotgun owners will never get the opportunity to operate their guns in a safe, controlled environment with any sort of practical, efficient type of shooting.
This class is designed to give the home-defense shotgun owner a chance to work out with their gun shooting live-fire drills on the range, stressing safety, loading, reloading, and firing at multiple targets with live ammunition.
We will start in the classroom looking at safety, gun handling, and loading and firing techniques, then head to the range for live fire drills. Reactive steel targets will be used.
3 Hours, 9am – 12pm, Please arrive at 8:45am, $125
