Everyday Shotgun

Employing the shotgun as part of a defensive system can be complicated and ego deflating. When incorporating a secondary system to the mix we introduce another set of challenges. In this course we address those complications. Using straight forward and simple tasks, we streamline the process into simple actions that will become second nature.  Not many people have run a shotgun with a secondary.  Within this course we will hone the mental skills required to problem solve on the fly.
