It had been way too many years since I took a shotgun class and I admit I don’t shoot it as often as I should, even for fun. So, when Outpost Armory offered a Shotgun Fundamentals class, I decided to follow the advice of Randy Cain and go back to basics and just knock some of the rust.

I believe that other than me and maybe one more, all of the students may have had a passing knowledge of shotgun or plain none at all. It was great to see people wanting to learn and do so in a platform that was supposed to be hard.

We had a couple who did not even owned a shotgun yet but were smart enough to invest in a class. They used a range weapon for the shooting portion.

And, of course the obligatory arty-tacticool photo,

I know, I am not Oleg. Shut up. 😀

They have more classes in other guns coming up and I believe I will take an AR class followed by a Red Dot Handgun class.

I will keep you posted.
