Tactical shotguns are traditionally pump action, meaning that fresh shells are fed into the firing chamber by means of a sliding “pump” that lies just underneath the barrel. It’s not complicated, but it will require a bit of practice to operate it smoothly. There are also some autoloading tactical shotguns where the loading process is, well, automatic. While easier to operate under stress, these also require some practice in order to handle them safely.

My Front Sight gun training instructor quickly diagnosed the malfunction and cleared it for me, as we had not yet reached that point in our training, but he gave me a quick overview of what he was doing, probably because I was looking at him like he had just started talking in Portuguese.
When we lived in the city, our family was very involved with little league football. The girls all cheered and mom was a coach on one of the teams. During the summer I would coach AYSO soccer and one daughter and my nephew would play. Needless to say we were very involved in our community and very busy.
Pastor McAbee believes there is nothing wrong with Christians owning a weapon. “The Bible says to obey the laws of the land, and the laws of the land here in Texas is that you can protect yourself.” For him it became a personal lesson on that day in February, 2011 when he stood face to face with two men who wanted to do him harm.
