Equipment You need to Bring

This is a tactical shotgun course. Students should be equipped with a quality pump or semiautomatic shotgun, chambered in 12 or 20 gauge, designed for this type of shooting. While extended magazine tubes are not required, firearms should be capable of being loaded with a minimum of 4 rounds.

A shotgun with a sling

A pistol with (3) magazines

Holster and Magazine Pouches

(20) slug rounds

(250) birdshot rounds

(50) rounds of pistol ammunition

(20) rounds of buckshot

It is strongly recommended to bring Reduced Recoil shotgun ammunition. A sling is a highly recommended piece of equipment. Students will be given instruction on the proper mounting of the sling to the shotgun. Birdshot is included in the ammunition listing to reduce the ammo cost for students as well as the typical side effects of the higher recoiling “00” Buckshot. Students may bring all buckshot if they so choose.
