Home Defense Shotgun 2 will teach you how to run your shotgun in various positions, situations, and under some skill based drills that will push you to your limits while keeping you focused on the objective – to win!

Bear in mind that we do not teach “range or administrative type skills”. We teach you life saving, defensive skills that will work in the real world, not just make you look and feel superior on the range. This shift in training is important. There is a lot of guns and gear out there that may look and work great on the range but SUCK (yes, that is a technical term) out in the real world. Bad gear will get you hurt – or worse.

For those that carry handguns for defense, we will also incorporate ‘transitioning’ skills to give you more options during an incident!
