Tactical Tip: Shotgun Stance

Tactical Tip: Shotgun Stance

Stance with a shotgun may start with the feet, but when done properly, it involves the entire body up to and including a firm cheek-weld.  Watch as Jeremy Stafford shares his preferred tactical shotgun stance, and how he uses it to maximize maneuverability and maintain complete control of his Mossberg 590.
