I’ve made no secret of the fact that the shotgun and I aren’t best buddies. I have shotguns, I use them, I’m pretty good with them in fact, but I do find them hard to warm up to. None of that changes the fact that the shotgun is a good home defense tool, and learning to run it well is a matter of good training!
More importantly, though, is learning some specifics to address the shotgun’s weaknesses. My buddy Andy Loeffler, who heads up the training department at Black Wing Shooting Center in Ohio, recently penned a good article for the Personal Defense Network about shotgun training and how it can help overcome some of the issues with the ol’ scattergun.
