Shooting Training Shotgun Basic Level

Course description

We highlight the important differences between the sport shooting (IPSC) and the combat/ defense - tactical shotgun shooting. 

These include the four basic skills of shooting, as well as safe handling with the SL ( self loading) shotgun and the pump shotgun in a 360 ° environment. 

The seminar participant learns the control over the withdrawal of his weapon and the tactical correction of any possible interference.

These tactics make it difficult for a criminal / an assassin / a terrorists to complete an attack.

In the seminar, readiness and safety positions as well as the achievement of control positions are taught.
