The Rockcut Shooting Club is located south of Powassan, Ontario, Canada. They have an excellent range facility that promotes traditional shooting sports as well as action oriented sports. The club itself has a forward thinking executive and an active membership. Regularly hosting action shooting matches and club level skills and drills nights, this a very active range for tactical/practical shooters.

Last year at SHOT show, MagPul Industries unveiled their SGA line for the venerable Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun. Releasing the SGA line (ShotGun Accessories) for the 870 was a wise move. On April 13, 2009, Remington Arms had produced ten million Model 870s and holds the record for best-selling shotgun in history. It is used by numerous LEO and military units internationally. Since then the SGA line has expanded to include the Mossberg 500/590, another prolific shotgun.

With the speed of modern operations, lightweight, compact, robust equipment that packs lots of punch is the rule, not the exception. Advanced technology and weapons have made allied forces highly mobile and more lethal. Between carrying those advanced technologies, the batteries required for it and modern ammunition loads, weight and space are at a premium. It is a game of ounces. Ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain. Handheld lights are no exception. Modern handheld tactical lights must be compact, lightweight robust and longer lasting with a blinding output.

I do not particularly like shotguns in a tactical role. Shotguns are heavy, have a very short range and have limited ammunition capacity for a long fight. Even a properly configured combat shotgun, albeit more useful than a hunting piece, is a poor choice headed into a serious fight. Admittedly, I have had little shotgun training within the military and no formal training outside the work. I learned that Phase Line Green Tactical was hosting a one day tactical shotgun course at Grenville Fish and Game near Prescott, Ontario on the 2nd of June, 2013. Using the website form, I enrolled in an attempt to expand my understanding and skill level with the shotgun platform.
