If you ever experience an extreme close quarters shooting instance during home intrusion, it is highly unlikely that the situation will allow you to aim down the sights and fire from the high ready position. So Rob Pincus demonstrates how to prepare yourself for the much more likely situation when you have to fire from retention. You may have to fire from retention for several reasons, including when an attacker is close enough that he could reach out and grab the barrel of your shotgun or you don’t have time to achieve the four points of contact. You’ll be able to get off a clean, effective shot from the retention position if you follow these instructions for extreme close quarters shooting.
