The Shotgun Instructor Development Program will expose you to technical and conceptual skills that will enable you to communicate more effectively with your clients. The program includes on-site lodging, classroom facilities, meals, firearms, and ammunition in order to allow you and your peers to focus exclusively on the theory, techniques and skills you are developing. The collaborative nature of the program is set up with long hours with little down time and lodging / meals off site are not feasible. Each day will consist of a training specific lecture relevant to the skills we are teaching that day and a discussion of the previous night;s reading on instructional techniques. Each evening, lecture materials and AV equipment are available for clients to prepare for the final day’s presentations. The days are packed with range and shotgun specific safety considerations, skill development drills, and instructor practical application of the teaching skills you are mastering!

With an eight round magazine tube and one in the pipe I am ballistically superior to Six, eight round .45 magazines, and nine 9mm magazines. Any other questions on why shotguns are the right answer to most intermediate and short range tactical problems?
