How to Shoot a Stationary Target with a Shotgun
The following directions are intended for an audience who will be or is thinking of using a pump action shotgun to shoot a stationary target. These directions are meant for inexperienced users of a pump action shotgun that may or may not be thinking of hunting in their personal future. These directions are mainly useful in a situation for the reader when they are shooting at a recreational target but some steps also apply for shooting at a non-flying animal. The purpose for such directions is to thoroughly explain the proper and safe use of a pump action shotgun to accurately shoot and hit a stationary target.
Wait until the range you are in front of is clear of the current shooter.The target in your range should be no more than 50 yards (45.7 m) away for beginners.
Take your place on the designated shooting area when the range is clear.
Insert your ear and eye protection.
Remove your shotgun from the gun carrying case and KEEP BARREL POINTED TO SKY.
Look around you and your target to make sure the range is clear of hazards such as people, animals, or equipment.
Take out your shotgun shells (slugs).
Make sure your gun safety is in ON position (a small switch near the trigger; if red, safety is OFF).
While your shotgun barrel is pointed toward the sky and away from others, insert one slug, with the open end of the shell nearest to the barrel, into the chamber of your shotgun.The chamber is an open area located on the side of the barrel.
Set your feet shoulder width apart and your stance is perpendicular to the target.
Making sure your gun safety is ON, bring the shotgun up to your shoulder.
Place your cheek on the side of the gun so you can see down the barrel.
Close the eye away from the barrel.
Look down the sight of the gun so the barrel appears completely flat and you can see the bead on the end.
While keeping steady, place the bead on the center on the target down YOUR range.
Take a deep breath to steady your nerves.
Push safety to OFF position with bead still on target.
When ready and with bead still on center of target, take another deep breath, BRACE YOURSELF for the strong recoil or “kick”, and pull the trigger.
PUSH SAFETY BACK TO OFF POSITION IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE SHOT.
Remove the gun from your shoulder and KEEP POINTED TO THE SKY OR GROUND.

- Shotguns are very dangerous weapons and should be handled with care at ALL times. If you are new to using a firearm or might use one in the near future, enroll in either a hunter safety or firearm safety course before using any type of firearm.
- These directions will not apply to shooting a moving target and therefore the reader will need to read a set of directions on shotgun use on moving targets.
- Using shotguns usually is done with groups of friends so knowing whose shotgun you are using is important to know how to load it and where the shells will eject. Shooting with friends is fun but you must be cautious and know where everyone is when loading your gun.
- These directions involve using a 20 gauge pump action shotgun with slug shells so the user must understand that there will be a strong recoil effect or “kick” associated with the shot and therefore there will be some feeling of discomfort involved. This recoil is due to the powerful nature of the shotgun when the slug is fired and may cause bruising on the shoulder from which the shotgun was fired. Have a friend punch you in the shoulder to get a feel for what the recoil will feel like.
- BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES!
- A shotgun should only be used in safe areas such as a commercial firing range or in a field on your own property where all surroundings can be identified.
- Try not to shoot around any hard surfaces including rocks as there may be ricochet.
- Only use shotguns on non-federal property unless used in public hunting areas.
