Have you ever heard a noise, in your house, late at night and not sure how to check your home safely? If you answered yes then this class is for you. We will focus mainly on the shotgun but the techniques you learn will be the same for a handgun, rifle, baseball bat or whatever weapon you can get your hands on to defend your family.
On March 10th and 11th CTIA is going to host a Tactical Shotgun Camp. The camp is going to be held at the Global One range in Fairfield UT. We will cover many aspects of the shotgun, it’s effectiveness and versatility. This will be a shooting class, not a classroom instruction. Come prepared to shoot your shotguns and learn some great things about how to use your shotgun for personal defense.
Day one we will go over some reloading drills and how to properly do a slug change over. If you are not familiar with a slug change over by the end of the day you will know what it is and how easy it is to do, even under stress. We are going to cover low light shooting and how to use flashlights to your benefit. We will also work on shooting from different positions and from behind cover. A local SWAT/Paramedic will be on hand to teach you how to treat gunshot wounds, self care and some buddy rescues.
There are many specialty rounds for the shotgun. We will have some on display and some to demo. We will have bullet proof glass normally used in armored vehicles and determine the effects of several types of shotgun rounds on it.
Day two will be a full day of shooting. Moving and shooting is very important no matter what weapon system you are using. A moving target is much harder to hit than a stationary one. You are also going to learn how to shoot and operate a shotgun with one hand. We will use both strong and weak hand shooting. Our motto is train for the worst and hope for the best.See you out there!
