Shooting Training Shotgun Master Level

Course description

Mindset, the mental readiness to fight, is also one of the most important criteria in the fire fight with the SL or repeating shotgun.

Only the mental readiness allows a controlled, tactically effective and fast defensive fire with the shotgun. This is what the trainee learns in this seminar. He applies the defensive fire from the movement, the rotation in various situations.

Proactive (tactical) reload, reactive reload known as speed reload or emergency reload, injured reload, these operations are designed to be mastered automatically.

We are training:

Shooting with the shotgun from special positions, such as kneeling, lying and sitting.

Shooting from special positions like SBU prone - reverse rollover - supine - broke back prone. These tactical positions allow the combat shooters to finish the firefight in their favor, especially in extreme situations.


This seminar builds on the shooting training Shotgun SG2: Advanced and is for the very advanced shooter with the Modern Isosceles training.
