Course Description:

Tactical Shotgun Instructor

The shotgun in 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 school begins with a focus on fundamentals of both pump and semi-automatic shotguns, ammunition, combat firing techniques, and the shotgun as a multi-purpose launching platform.  Advanced range work includes moving targets, firing on the move, multiple threats, decision-making, select loading, speed reloading techniques, transitioning to handgun, one-hand malfunction clearing, identifying threats and firing in reduced light conditions.  Students design a tactical course of fire and are responsible for developing a lesson plan and running fellow students through their course at the end of the week.


Officers must have successfully completed a law enforcement firearm instructor school that included general methods of instruction prior to attending this school.

This is an advanced tactical shooting instructor school, and is not to be considered a basic shooting or methods of firearm instructor school.

In addition to the above mentioned equipment, the following are also neccessary for this course:

  • Duty-type, law enforcement 12 gauge pump or semi-auto police shotgun equipped with a sling.
  • 100 rounds of 12 gauge slug.
  • 100 rounds of 12 gauge 00 buckshot.
  • 500 rounds of birdshot (#6, #8 or #9).
  • 100 rounds of duty or training handgun ammunition.
