This is an entry-level course. Students are introduced to the concepts, strategies, and the development of building home defense plan. Basic shotgun manipulation, nomenclature, and effective use for defense are covered.

This course lays the foundation for the ability to defend your family and home with the use of a shotgun and an effective home defense plan. We consider this course extremely valuable for all people regardless of their interests in firearms.

There is a 5-10 round familiarization practical on the range in the second half of the course. If you do not already own a shotgun, we have them available for the course. Ammunition and hsotgun rentals are available at the store.
