Tactical Shotgun 1 Course in Eugene Oregon
Tactical Shotgun 1 is a great course for anyone who plans on using a shotgun to protect their family and loved ones. The skills taught in this specific course are geared for both defensive situations inside and outside the home. Regardless of whether you have used a shotgun for years as a hunter, competitor, or in a Law Enforcement capacity or have never used a Tactical Shotgun before in your life, you will learn a significant amount from this class. During the 8 hours of intense training, our goal is to equip you with the tools to effectively, safely, and competently employ what is the most versatile tool in your arsenal.
We begin with a lecture portion that covers the proper mindset and theories of operation regarding tactical shotguns. We also will go over the different types of shotguns, sight systems, sidesaddles, slings, and lights that are on the market with respect to which ones are good and which ones to avoid. A lot of time is also spent covering the different types of ammo and their application in a defensive encounter.
During our dry fire portion we talk cover the fundamentals such as stance, grip, trigger control, and follow through. Then we go over proper weapons handling, loading/unloading, quick slug changeovers, progressive loading and clearing malfunctions. Once we break into the live fire segment we cover shooting from standing, kneeling, and prone positions, shooting from behind cover, movement, and weapons transitions. We finish the class with engaging multiple targets and engaging targets at longer distances. The course is optimized for Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 style shotguns, but we can accommodate whatever you have.
