Austin, TX (Burnet) - Shotgun Protector (June 21, 2024)

  • June 21 - June 21, 2024

About this Course

We face threats of violence every day, ranging from large-scale terrorism to one-on-one assaults. Most people are unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond effectively.

We’ve developed the Shotgun Protector curriculum to address the growing demand to learn the techniques that Special Operators, SWAT, and law enforcement officers use to employ shotguns in self-defense. The course will not only cover how to employ a shotgun effectively but also the different types of shotguns and the different types of shotgun ammo. You can learn the skills that have been made popular in movies and in shooting competitions and learn how to use them in a real-world self-defense situation.

Are you prepared to save your life … and the lives of others?

Learn from some of the best instructors in the world, with decades of experience in shooting.

You will spend one day learning skills to employ a shotgun in self-defense. Professional shooters will offer instruction and demonstration on the techniques, and then you will get the opportunity to test them out yourself in realistic scenarios. You will learn to load, engage, and correct malfunctions quickly. This course teaches the full potential of the number one home defense weapon system.
