One of the most effective firearms for self defense is the shotgun; it is also one of the most misunderstood. There are many myths and half-
truths surrounding the shotgun, and this course is designed to address them. Fortress will guide the novice through the ins-
outs of the shotgun, and present a useful skill set which will then be applied to practical self defense.
We attempt to provide a staff member for every 2-3 students to provide the most personal instruction experience possible. If requested, a female instructor will be available to assist any female students.
