Defensive Shotgun Instructor Course

Oct 8-10, 2021 Shotgun Instructor, White Hall, AR

The shotgun is one of the most effective and versatile weapons available to the average private citizen or police officer. It is also the least understood and most under-utilized weapon system. Learn how to teach students to properly select, modify, feed and operate the defensive shotgun for optimum effectiveness. This intensive course will teach you efficient techniques for handling and shooting the shotgun under stressful conditions. Topics covered include:

Firearms safety, including considerations specific to shotguns

Selection of the fighting shotgun

Modifications and Accessories

Ammunition selection and capabilities

Patterning for optimum performance

Nomenclature and mechanical operation

Shooting technique

Loading/reloading techniques

Safe storage and ready conditions, including cruiser ready

Care and maintenance

Adult teaching methods

Training aids

Instructor candidates will receive an extensive training manual and an over two hour long instructional DVD as part of the training package.

Students will need 300 rounds of birdshot, 100 rounds of buckshot, and 40 slugs. We will have some properly set up loaner shotguns available.

To graduate from this course, student instructors will have to pass a shooting qualification and a written test on the material covered in the course. Students will also conduct a brief classroom presentation. There is a Holiday Inn in White Hall ten minutes from the range. The range is a modern, well kept private range facility.
