Since we were traveling extensively in a motor home the staff recommend that the shotgun may be the preferred defensive weapon for our situation. So, we decided to stay for a second week and take the 260 Shotgun Class. The 250 Pistol Class made the 260 Shotgun Class easier since we were familiar with the facility and the class format. Both the pistol and shotgun were to be used together in this class. Again, the staff recommended which type and gage of shotgun we should use. As in the pistol class, we had a great instructor for the shotgun class who had decades of professional experience. Being seniors, the class was a physical challenge for us. The shotguns were heavy and required more strength to operate. Physical conditioning is recommended if you are not accustomed to the weight and demands of a shotgun. By the third day we were quite familiar with the shot gun and were easily hitting our targets at up to 100 yards. The shotgun is now our preferred weapon since we will be traveling through many states in our motor home that have different gun laws for pistols.
