Rangemaster Defensive Shotgun Instructor Development Course

Franklin, Tennessee   private range facility

May 4-6, 2018    Friday through Sunday, 9am-6pm each day

 

The shotgun is one of the most effective and versatile weapons available to the average private citizen or police officer. It is also the least understood and most under-utilized weapon system. Learn how to teach students to properly select, modify, feed and operate the defensive shotgun for optimum effectiveness. This intensive course will teach you efficient techniques for handling and shooting the shotgun under stressful conditions.

 

Topics covered include:

Firearms safety, including considerations specific to shotguns

Selection of the fighting shotgun

Modifications and Accessories

Ammunition selection and capabilities

Patterning for optimum performance

Nomenclature and mechanical operation

Shooting technique

Loading/reloading techniques

Safe storage and ready conditions, including cruiser ready

Care and maintenance

Adult teaching methods

Training aids

 

Instructor candidates will receive an extensive training manual and an over two hour long instructional DVD as part of the training package.

 

Students will need 250 rounds of birdshot, 150 rounds of buckshot, and 30 slugs. We will have some properly set up loaner shotguns available.

 

To graduate from this course, student instructors will have to pass a shooting qualification and a written test on the material covered in the course.

This is a really good course.  I was the host and assistant instructor for the inaugural class.  Tom has made a few tweaks to the original plan.

The range that is hosting this course is one of my favorite ranges.

OK last call on this one....this is coming up in just over a week. Tom is one of my mentors and even if he wasn't I'd still say he puts on a great class. I'd be there if I were not already previously engaged with a family event.

The best way to get good traveling instructors to come offer classes in Tennessee is to sign up when they offer something....So if you can make it... sign up !

Unfortunately not this time. I had a family function in Knoxville over the weekend. I was just pimping the class for Tom in this thread out of sheer altruism. Hopefully it filled up and was awesome. But I guess we'll have to wait for a review....

      I just picked up a Model 11 in very good condition for it's advanced years.  Stripped her down and cleaned all internals, which looked like no one had attended to them since she rolled off the line in 1936!  She's squeaky clean and lubricated now.

      The gun fires fine, however she is still cycling with low-power target stuff (2 1/4 Dram - 1 oz.) with the recoil system set for high-power 12 gauge fodder.  Recoil on the high power stuff is pretty stiff and the action return spring 'sings' in the stock after a shot.    These symptoms lead me to believe I need to replace the recoil spring, but I am having a hard time locating a 'new production' replacement. 

      I have two questions for knowledgeable folks on the Model 11:

      1) What is the uncompressed length on the 'factory' recoil spring? (since all I can locate are used parts, this would allow me to determine if the spring has 'collapsed' or if it's still useable.
      2) Has anyone played around with manufacturing 'spacers' to provide more tension on a 'weakened' older spring?  This is not an ideal solution, I know, but I cannot find new stock.
