The Basics of Tactical Shotgun Training | Shooting Illustrated

Must Read

What is the best firearm for home protection, a pistol, a rifle, or a shotgun? A defensive or tactical shotgun features a heavyweight hammer but a small ammo capacity. A competent tactical shotgun training course may help you maximize the effectiveness of your defensive shotgun. A shotgun loaded with a decent buckshot bullet is an ultimate fight-ender if its capabilities and limitations are understood.

Givens teaches a “push-pull” technique in which the hand that holds the shotgun’s fore-end pulls out toward the target while the other hand snugs the butt against the shoulder; This generates a “spring-loaded” effect and lets you quickly put the gun’s sights back on target after each fire. The decreased magazine capacity of the defensive shotgun may be compensated for by reloading the magazine as often as feasible. As with other firearms, there are two reloads: tactical and emergency. A gun requires an emergency reload when it runs out of ammo and must be reloaded immediately. A tactical reload involves adding extra bullets to a partly empty rifle.
