Defensive Shotgun Class (4hrs)
The NRA does not offer a defensive shotgun class for civilians at this time, although the rumor is they are thinking about offering one. We use a course of fire that helps a student learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of a long gun as a personal protection device, and we stress safety with the shotgun. A student will fire approximately 125 rounds of ammunition and should leave with a good idea of how to practice with a shotgun to be effective in a defensive situation. A 20 gauge or 12 gauge pump or semi auto with at least 5 rounds of magazine capacity is recommended, but if a student has physical limitations a .410 will work.
