Ashland Lake Gun Club


May 3, 2003 - 9:00AM

Agenda: An introduction to the use of the shotgun as a defensive weapon and its use in Tactical Shotgun matches.

When & Where: Meet at the pavilion at 9:00 AM for a brief classroom session. Coffee and pastries will be provided. After the classroom session, we will head to the range for live fire training. Shooting should be completed by 1:00 PM.

Cost: $5 plus Affiliate Membership fee if you are not a member. No pre-registration is required.

Prerequisites: This is not a class for completely new shooters. Although safety and basic shotgun manipulation will be covered in this class, it will be assumed that attendees have at least some shooting experience, and have fired a shotgun before.

What to bring:
  • A pump or semi-automatic shotgun, without optical sights. A shorter barreled, "riot gun" type shotgun is preferred, but a regular hunting shotgun will work just fine. I do have a Mossberg M500 Youth Gun, 20 ga, ported with recoil reducer available for those of smaller stature who can't handle a full size gun. I will also have a few full size, 12 ga. shotguns available. Please call in advance if you would like to use any of these guns.
  • 50 rounds of birdshot (cheap low brass shells are fine, #6 or larger shot), 5 rounds of buckshot, 5 slugs.
  • Hearing and eye protection are mandatory at all times.
  • If you have your own ammunition carrying gear (bandoliers, etc), bring it. Extra ammunition carrying equipment will be available.
Additional information: The latest revision of the Tactical Shotgun & Rifle Program rules are available here. It would probably be useful to look these over before attending.

PLEASE NOTE: The Cinco de Mayo social event is on the same day at 3:00pm. Members and pre-registered guests are invited. (registration form here)
