What you will need:

Round count: 20-slugs, 75-buckshot (2-3/4″ shells are fine. Magnum or 3″ shells are just going to beat you up. If you’d like to run birdshot during some of the drills, you’re welcome to.) Bring extra ammo. You’ll need 50-rounds for your pistol, as well. If you choose to bring a 20-guage shotgun, contact us for ammunition recommendations.
– A proper defensive shotgun in a short barrel (18-20”) “home defense/law enforcement” configuration, in 12 or 20 gauge. The Remington 870 and Mossberg 500/590 are the common and recommended pump-action guns. The Benelli Super 90 (M1/M2, M4) along with the Remington 1100/1187 and Saiga 12 are the common auto loaders.  We do not recommend the Winchester pump or autoloaders, nor the Ithaca pump or autoloader – PLEASE DO NOT BRING ONE!

Double barrel, over-under, and hunting/bird guns are NOT allowed in this class.

The more factory original your shotgun is the better. Adding accessories generally creates more problems than it solves. However, a side saddle for spare ammunition is recommended, as long as it is receiver mounted.  Those manufactured be GG&G are good quality, as well as those by Surefire. Extended charging handles, heat shields, etc., only make your gun heavier. Leave the gimmicks for the amateurs.

Ammunition carriers on the stock or the sling are worthless. “Speedfeed” stocks are also not worth the trouble (if you have one installed already, just leave it.)

– Your shotgun must have a sling!

 –Your shotgun must have a stock! Shotguns equipped with ONLY a pistol grip and lacking a full stock will NOT be allowed on the range!

– Hearing and eye protection (wrap around eyewear with side protection), as well as a hat with a brim.

– Sturdy footwear (no open toes.)

– Long pants. Jeans or tactical type pants with proper belt loops.

– Sturdy belt which will hold the weight of your holstered pistol and spare magazine. Do not wear a cheap, 1”, woven-fiber dress belt.  Leather belts or belts designed specifically as pistol belts are best.

– We strongly suggest long sleeves and shirts with closed collars (especially for female students.)

– Concealment garment which will cover pistol – lightweight jacket, vest or suit coat. Dress for the weather and have rain gear. We will work transition from long gun to pistol in this class.

-Whatever medications you may need. Bug spray, sun block, etc., are up to you. It’s recommended that you have aspirin, Band-Aids, etc…

– We will not leave the range for lunch – bring your lunch, as well as snacks and beverages.
