Shooting a home-defense shotgun may be a relatively simple process to learn, but it is a difficult one to master. Before you add a shotgun to your personal defense arsenal, you should know how to load, aim, fire and reset the weapon properly. Rob Pincus explains why you should train with a shotgun for closer, more practical distances, or what are called extreme distances. Then he demonstrates the techniques you should implement for moving the gun into shooting position, touching and pressing the trigger, moving laterally and running the action to get a new shell into the chamber right after you take your shot.
