The Learning the Shotgun course combines the fundamental and basic skills necessary for combat marksmanship with the tactical knowledge required to survive with a shotgun in a hostile environment.  This is the first level of Tactical Firearms Academy’s shotgun courses with emphasis placed on basic shooting skills and developing tactical applications for those skills.


Topics covered are:

• Safety- Administrative, range and operational carry

• 8 Fundamentals of Marksmanship

• Nomenclature

• Proper Loading Techniques

• Stance & Mount

• Patterning at 3, 7, 10, 15, 20 and 25 yards

• Target acquisition (single and multiple threats)

• Ready positions

• Shooting on the move

• CSTC qualification (Criminal Justice Standard & Training Commission Shotgun qualifier)



This is a 9 hour block of instruction comprised primarily of live fire training on an outdoor range.  Class size is kept small to permit individual instruction.  A certificate of training is awarded to those students who complete and pass the course while exhibiting competence and safe gun handling skills.
