Our certified instructors will cover safe firearms handling procedures, general shotgun knowledge, the fundamentals of marksmanship, as well as the proper care and storage of firearms. This class will deliver a solid foundation to build upon and give beginners the skills they need to become responsible, confident shooters.
This course provides a solid foundation to effectively employ the shotgun in both controlled and real-world environments. This course develops the skills needed to efficiently operate either a pump-action or semi-automatic shotgun and the confidence to identify, react and work though common malfunctions, emergency and deliberate reloads and slug/shot changeovers.
