Foundation Shotgun

Class Cost

$200
Includes:
  • Full Day Class Tuition
  • Range Fee

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.

This class is for students who understand the fundamentals of marksmanship, live by the four-life safety rules of firearms handling, and are looking to learn to use the shotgun as a defensive tool.

Foundation Shotgun 👍🏻 This class was just plain fun for me. You MUST take This class are going to have a shotgun leaning against the wall for home defense. Yes, YOU HAVE TO AIM A SHOTGUN. And you need to know how YOURS works.I never considered it, just figured I'd use my carry weapon. So I solely purchased an 870 clone just for the class thinking I'd use it once.YSINTG was my favorite, now it's 2nd Place.If you're afraid of the 12ga recoil, use a 20. Still worried? Don't be. My shoulder doesn't even know I shot a couple hundred 12ga rounds. And some were 3" 00 buck high brass with 15 pellets. They BARKED, but didn't hurt with the knowledge I gained today. There was a young lady in my class, and she was having no problems managing recoil after instruction.Just take it!

Awesome class today Foundation Shotgun. Excellent instructor..Hands down the best training session I have taken.
