    I have taken numerous classes for home defense using pistol (I use M1911A1). There is a range "up the street" where they offer a shotgun familiarization class and then a home defense class.

    Those two classes plus the ammo come to $300ish. I have some better use for that money.

    I've shot a shotgun before, but I would spend some range time with this one. That costs a lot less.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I would skip familiarization if you are familiar with a shotgun at all and jump right to a shotgun 1 class if one is offered. If the HD class is mostly talk, law and tactics I would skip it and opt for a class that will give you optimal range time, unless that is what you want. I'm all about range time!

    Near as I can tell, the basic class is required/prerequisite.

    How long are the classes?

    Over by me it's an all day 8 hour training session shooting 300-500 rounds per day.

    Runs $180 per class plus your ammo.

    No way near shooting enough in those classes and the price per hour is a little high IMHO.

    They have a lot of information in the videos. A lot of drills that you can do, and practice over and over again.

    And the good thing about well made training videos, you can watch them a year from now to refresh and probably pick up something you missed the first time.

    They're definitely worth the $7 asking price.

    I think I have most of them. Shotgun, handgun, carbine and even aerial ops LOL. Every time I would see them on sale I picked them up. Good videos.

    A guy that taught locally here got picked up by Magpul and was in one of them. The shogun video I think.

    I need to watch them again, time for a refresher.
