Tactical Shotgun 1 near Cottage Grove Oregon

Course Location


Tactical Shotgun 1 Course near Cottage Grove Oregon is 8-hours of entry-level shotgun training at a shooting range.

Tactical Shotgun 1 (TS1) Course will teach you how to employ 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 to 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 by 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.

  1. Jennifer

    Wanted to take this class to better understand the shotgun and how to use it for home defense. I walk away with more knowledge and information than I expected. I am thoroughly satisfied with this class. The level of prudentialism was top notch and I felt safe throughout the entire course.

  2. Scott

    The instructor was very knowledgeable and has a good attitude. We got plenty of breaks and he was very good at answering questions. I would definitely recommend this shotgun course and Defensive Firearms Instruction.

Be Prepared In Advance With LegalShield

Are you are a private citizen carrying a weapon for personal defense? Are you a private security professional working your job?

You should, too! It is imperative for individuals who carry firearms for personal defense to have legal backing. Even in the most clear-cut self-defense situations, if you end up in a defensive situation there is an incredibly high likelihood that attorneys are going to have to get involved. If you do not have legal backing set up in advance, it could cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars to obtain legal defense. Our recommendation is to have LegalShield, which provides legal defense for any situation, to include defensive situations, for a low monthly fee.

Did you know that every member of our Defensive Firearms Instruction team personally carries LegalShield?

We recommend getting the base plan plus the gun owner supplement which totals $37.90 per month. Individuals who get this coverage can also add dependents and spouses to the plan and they get the same coverage for no additional cost. For independent contractors or company owners, you can get a business plan to provide coverage for your companies which starts out at $39.00 per month.
