260 Defensive Shotgun
This five-day course will give you command of one of the least-understood weapons systems available. The shotgun can act as a breaching device, a gas-delivery system or an effective fight-stopper, out to and beyond 100 yards. The shotgun’s flexibility demands a special set of manipulation skills, making it a “thinking person’s” weapons system.
In “260” you will learn the marksmanship and manipulations that will help you to master this potent arm. You’ll learn ammunition selection, continuity of fire, malfunction clearances and transitions to the handgun. You’ll have plenty of indoor and outdoor simulators where targets range from 5 to 120 yards. The shotgun is a demanding weapons system, but it is extremely effective. If you intend to defend your loved ones, your home or your duty partner with the shotgun, then our “260” class will give you all the skills you need.
Duration: 5 days
Ammunition: 400 rounds 00 buckshot - 200 rounds birdshot – 150 rounds slugs – 50 rounds pistol
SATP Shotgun Advanced Tactical Problems
“SATP” is a “finishing school” for shot gunners. In this demanding three-day course, you will be taught to deliver maximum hits to the target in the minimum amount of time. A great deal of this course is off the square range and in the simulators, where you’ll work in increasingly complex tactical problems in indoor and outdoor formats. A good deal of force-on-force scenarios will be presented wherein you will be forced to make split-second decisions in dealing with real aggressors using non-lethal munitions.
If you have taken “260”, but want to attain the highest level of preparation with the shotgun, then “SATP” will give you authoritative command of the shotgun.
