Fundamental Shotgun Skills (FSS) – Las Vegas, NV


June 4, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm



Course Overview

Fundamental Shotgun Skills (FSS) is a 5hr introductory course designed to provide students with safe, efficient, and effective defensive shotgun skills. Contrary to popular belief, the shotgun doesn’t have to “beat you up” when using the proper technique. Learn to be a competent shotgun operator without the fear or pain commonly associated with this firearm. Students will receive a mixture of lecture, practical, and live-fire instruction to familiarize them with their shotgun, how it works, and how to achieve accurate first-round hits on target consistently. FSS is excellent for beginners looking to learn new skills or shooters looking to fine-tune previously learned skills. This course is a good prep course for any of the PFC Progressive Shotgun Series classes.


Course content will include but is not limited to:

  • Firearms & Range Safety – Learn proper firearm safety and handling techniques for on and off the range.
  • Shotgun Nomenclature – Learn the different parts of your shotgun so you can handle and shoot it better.
  • Shotgun Maintenance – Keep your shotgun maintained so it functions when needed.
  • Preparatory Handling  – Learn best practices for loading, status checking, and unloading your shotgun.
  • Mounting and Recoil Mitigation – How to shoot the shotgun in a way that doesn’t beat you up and allows you to enjoy shooting!
  • Fundamentals of Marksmanship and Self Patterning – Learn that there’s more to the shotgun than just pointing it and pressing the trigger. Understand how your shotgun with your ammunition “patterns” so you are accountable for all projectiles when fired.
