After reviewing nomenclature and relevant modifications, this law enforcement-centric class focuses on using the shotgun within practical and Constitutional confines. The curriculum covers manipulating the weapon, loading & unloading, single and multiple threat engagements, use of cover, close-range engagements, single projectile considerations, working around vehicles, as well as understanding and accepting the platform's limitations when seeking out those believed to be earned and violent.
This pairs well with Low Light Applications for a solid combination.
