Pre-Requisite: All attendees must be a qualified firearm instructor successfully completed a state approved firearm instructor course.  Proof of same must accompany Academy registration.

The shotgun is one of the most underutilized tools available to officers because their training has failed to instill confidence in their abilities and eliminate the hesitation they have towards firing the shotgun.

This one-day Police Shotgun Instructor update will focus on fundamentals of both pump and semi-automatic shotguns, ammunition, combat firing techniques and the shotgun as a multi-purpose launching platform.  Range work includes firing on the move, multiple threats, decision-making, select loading, speed reloading techniques, transitioning to handgun, identifying threats and firing in reduced light conditions.

  • Reliable, mechanically sound shotgun (pump or semi-automatic) with a sling
  • Duty handgun, related gear and 3 magazines
  • Footwear suitable for rapid movement and turning
