SAFTD F.A.S.T. Shotgun
The goal of the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division's “F.A.S.T Shotgun” course is to provide the student with a solid foundation in basic knowledge of Shotgun "Fundamentals and Safety Training" on your specific Shotgun, a basic understanding of ammunition and how it functions as well as shooting fundamentals.
A person new to the use of a firearm for personal defense typically has a broad range of questions and is faced with learning a number of skills that are critical in the safe use of a firearm – in this case a Shotgun. F.A.S.T Shotgun is specifically designed to provide a person new to Shotguns the opportunity to gain that knowledge and learn the basics of operation, cleaning and maintenance, safety and much more in a convenient 4 hour course. “F.A.S.T Shotgun” is also meant as an introductory course for students new to shotguns prior to taking SAFTD Defensive Shotgun 1.
