This program follows the manufacturer's guidelines and is taught by FBI and NRA-certified instructors.SWAT Magazine recently featured SLR15 and Greg Sullivan "Sully" (the primary instructor for this course) as a cover story. Sully has also had numerous write ups in Guns & Ammo Magazine, SWAT Magazine, Gun & Weapons for Law Enforcement Magazine, Shooting Times Magazine, Precision Rifle Magazine, and several other publications.The Shotgun Armoring Course covers the Law Enforcement Duty-type pump shotguns of the Remington 870, Mossberg 500/590, and the Semi-Automatic Benelli M1-90/M2.
