Course Information

Course Details

Our Combative Shotgun courses is designed for gun novices to develop the experience needed to safely handle and effectively shoot a shotgun, as well as having a base understanding of the combative skills needed to dominate a lethal force confrontation.

CFC Shotgun logoThis fast paced, dynamic, and shooting intensive series of courses are taught entirely on the range in order to maximize your gun handling and trigger time. Designed specifically to gain the student the maximum amount of raw skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to dominate a lethal force confrontation in the minimum amount of training time and money invested, no other course in the industry will leave you as prepared for the fight of your life in a shorter amount of time. All of our courses have been painstakingly crafted to eliminate all extraneous material and structures your training experience in a manner that allows you to propel yourself along as far and as fast as you choose.

These courses are taught in sequential 4-hour modules. Students can take the modules at their own pace but they must be taken in order as each builds on it's predecessor. For many students, the handgun modules will meet their training needs, for other more serious students, they will continue on to handgun and rifle or go directly to the Master of Chaos or "MoC" program offerings. Students successfully completing the modules get a "Combative Firearms Certified" patch for each weapon trained.

For students looking for an accelerated total immersion course we offer our Master of Chaos-3 or "MoC-3" program which introduces all three weapon platforms integrated with force-on-force reality based training. We offer a "provisioning" package purchase option for gun novices that provides all the weapons and accessories needed for a fully-outfitted personal tactical armory.

By the end of this series of courses you will have the necessary experience and knowledge needed to safely handle and effectively deploy your tactical shotgun, as well as having a solid base of knowledge and understanding of the combative skills needed to dominate a lethal force confrontation.

Combative Shotgun Mastery - A Module Approach

Our shooting intensive courses consist of the practical application of combative firearm manipulation conveyed through abundant dry-practice and live-fire drills helping you develop the confidence and skills need to deploy your shotgun with devastating effectiveness.

Our techniques and methodologies are designed to integrate what your body does naturally under the threat of a close in lethal force confrontation, utilizing your bodies natural response to quickly and efficiently eliminate threats.

This series introduces 15 core training drills which you can do on your own - at home or on the road - to sharpen the combative edge you will establish with us.
The fee for this course includes a one-year subscription to the Pulse O2DA Battle Academy.

By using our building block approach presented via a total-emersion hands-on structured training environment, you will be steeped in basic gun-handling skills and shooting fundamentals via both dry-practice and live-fire drills. By the end of this series of courses you will have the necessary experience and knowledge needed to safely handle and effectively shoot your tactical shotgun, as well as having a base of knowledge and understanding of combative skills needed to help you make the best decisions for your future training.

In addition to the range work you will receive the unique support network that Pulse O2DA clients experience with our pre-course, concurrent, and post course training materials which will surround you with quality educational materials (printable electronic white papers, training programs, manuals, downloadable videos, etc.,) that will aid you in your further self-improvement and personal training.

Unlike more traditional courses that attempt to teach via lengthy lectures of declarative knowledge and training that is light on actual firearms handling, our courses are designed to immediately immerse you in proper gun-handling skills by way of personal hands-on experiences from the very beginning of your course, thereby leaving you with very tangible and practical skills that you can hone on your own.

Whether you take a break between courses to sharpen your skills for the next level of training, or you feel confident enough in your abilities to transition the next level immediately, you can set your own pace to advance, or repeat training modules as you see fit.
