This entry-level course where students are familiarized with their shotguns. This class is geared toward those with training outside the basic classes from novice to the intermediate shooter, looking to tune up some skills.

No two classes will have the same curriculum, as each class will be based on the students and their training goals in each class.  

Individual students’ goals, abilities and skills will be the basis for each class’ instruction.  Each drill and exercise will build a solid surface for each student to develop a plan for their personal practice sessions and will enable them to diagnose their own mistakes and to empower them to be better, more efficient shooters, and effective weapon manipulator after the class and for years to come, by using proven and current techniques.
