Foundation Shotgun

CLASS COST: 

$175

Applicable range fee (typically $20 - $25) is due at the start of class via CASH or CHECK.

 

DESCRIPTION:

Class flow: MODERATE (students can expect full day of shooting and weapon manipulation from a static line) 

There is no other defensive firearm as versatile as the Shotgun. Foundation Shotgun is designed to stress the importance of proper weapon manipulation and shooting techniques. The goal of this MDFI Foundation class is to build a strong and efficient foundation regarding the proper use and manipulation of the Shotgun as a defensive tool.  Without a strong foundation, any additional training is wasted time.  This class will prepare students for our "Advanced" level classes and is a mandatory prerequisite to move on with the MDFI curriculum.
