Practical Shotgun Skills - Rob Haught

Race Street Range has invited Rob Haught to bring his Practical Shotgun Skills class to the Philadelphia region, at New Holland Rifle & Pistol Club in Gap, PA

This class primarily focuses on the Push/Pull method of recoil control. Using Rob's unique method of recoil management, the student will be able to reduce felt recoil by nearly 50% and be able to fire follow-up shots with a 12 gauge pump shotgun as fast as most shooters can fire their pistols. The student will also be introduced to the shotgun CQB technique, which effectively shortens the weapon by 33%, making it effective even in extremely tight quarters. Other topics include: marksmanship fundamentals, patterning zones, ammunition selection, tactical manipulation, equipment selection, low light considerations, malfunction clearances, pistol transitions, pivots/turns, and shooting on the move.

Equipment requirements:

• Reliable tube-fed duty-type shotgun
• Dump pouch, belt carriers, chest rig, etc.
• Service pistol and holster
• Eye and ear protection
• Shooting gloves
• Clothing suitable for range work
• Kneepads
• Snacks and water
• Weapons lubricant and cleaning supplies
• 500 rds. birdshot
• 25 rds. buckshot
• 25 rds. slug
• 50 rds. pistol

At this time, class is FULL and we are no longer accepting wait list registration. 

Note: dates are set, times subject to change.
