Critical Shotgun & SSS Shotgun

Shotguns are being sold as ideal home defense weapons. However, there is a serious misconception that you cannot miss with a shotgun. That is not true and this course will prove it. Understanding the ballistics and shot patterns are so crucial when implementing a shotgun for law enforcement or self-defensive purposes in your home or out in public. Being one of the most versatile weapon systems, shotguns have advantages and disadvantages. Proper implementation of the fundamentals of combative/tactical/defensive fundamentals is vital. Loading and mechanical manipulation are so important in order to shoot and manipulate this weapon properly.
