Home Defense Shotgun Program

Choose between June 27 or July 18 for your class date
Class is 12:30 to 4:30p on Saturday / No lunch

You can bring your own shotgun and ammo, or you can use ours, and we will have .410 and 20-gauge and 12-gauge shotguns to use. We will also have low velocity ammo available. We will shoot targets at different distances, multiple targets, and from behind a barricade.
Cost is only $50 (using your own ammo-about 50-100 rounds) $70 using our ammo. Class is limited to 16 people.

The Executive Protection Institute (EPI) is proud to support the Freedom Festivals encouragement of Freedom and the right to self defense by offering our Home Defense Shotgun program at Kahr Arms.

This is perfect for Men, Woman, and Young Adults to learn about the advantages of the shotgun for home defense. It is especially good for those who have had no formal training in how to shoot the shotgun, and those who may have an apprehension of it. We will ease your mind and you will become comfortable and enjoy shooting the shotgun.

The classroom portion will cover safety (always!), types of shotguns and types of ammo and how they function, shotgun marksmanship fundaments, and defensive home positions to protect yourself and your loved ones.

At the range, we will go over in a slow and safe manner, how to safely carry a shotgun, loading and unloading, low and high ready positions, how to properly shoulder the shotgun, techniques to minimize recoil, and how to shoot from behind cover.
