Defensive Shotgun Skills Training with Rochester Personal Defense
A shotgun for home defense can be an awesome tool. Knowing how to use it effectively is even better! The shotgun is one of the best 'multiple/variable projectile' systems there are.
Home defense and self defense with a firearm is a decision that should be made with a clear head and the desire to become as proficient as possible. Using a tool such as a shotgun requires proper training in order to be efficient and safe. We will teach you all of that and more!
As always, safety is the primary focus, but we will teach you easy to learn and replicate skills and techniques to be able to handle the shotgun under the stress of a Critical Incident.
No fancy tricks (Sorry Gunner) or impossible trick shots, just plain 'how to run your shotgun and keep it running' training. We will teach you how to use your shotgun, build that defensive mindset, and how to not only win, but to prevail in that deadly force encounter.
