MATCH DESCRIPTION

 
 

The defensive shotgun is the ultimate in stopping power in a Close Quarters confrontation!

 
  The objectives of these matches are:  
  1. To help familiarize people with the manual of arms of one of the most popular and effective weapons in history...the "Defensive Shotgun".  
  2. To help people improve and test their skills.  
  3. To promote safe and friendly competitions that are open to all shooters.  
  4. To provide a venue where people of like mind can gather for camaraderie and to exchange knowledge, ideas and training concepts.  
     
 

COURSES OF FIRE

 
     
  Courses of fire will be practical and realistic in nature. They will utilize reactive steel, balloons and paper. Cover must be used when available (unless otherwise stated by the COF).  Reloads must be done behind cover when available or a shooter may do tactical reloads on the move as long they aren't exposed to any threats that haven't been neutralized. Targets will be engaged in Tactical Priority.  
     
 

Divisions of Competition

 
 

There are three divisions of competition.

 
     
  1. MANUAL - Manual Division will include any manually operated shotguns, pump, bolt action, lever actions (6 rounds max to start.)  
  2. AUTO - Auto division is for any autoloading shotguns. (6 Rounds max to start)  
  3. OPEN - Open division is for any shotguns with compensators, optics, and or any shotgun using detachable magazines.  Open shotguns may also be loaded to capacity. (Any competitor who wishes to load to full capacity may compete in Open Division.)  
     
 

To help maintain a level playing field within the MANUAL and AUTO divisions, shotguns will be loaded with 6 rounds maximum to start unless otherwise stated by the course of fire.
