Richard Mann, host of Gunsite Academy NOW!, and Gunsite Academy Training Director Dave Hartman discuss and demonstrate ready positions for the defensive shotgun. Presented are: low ready, high ready, and close ready.
Hartman describes the three different carry styles. Low ready allows a person to move and search for where the threat may be. The high-ready or outdoor-ready has the muzzle and head up at shoulder level for searching. The low-ready or indoor-ready has the muzzle pointed to the ground to be able to look around tight spaces.
