POTD: Proficiency Training in Djibouti

Welcome to TFB’s Photo Of The Day. As the name implies, this page is dedicated to rare and unique pics which are updated daily, and I guess that short shotgun got your attention? Did you ever fire one? What did you think? Did you find it hard or easy to hit your target? These pictures are from an undisclosed location in Djibouti, where members of the 82nd Expeditionary Rescue Squadron conducted proficiency training across multiple weapon systems earlier this year.

Special warfare Airmen conduct training on all aspects of combat, medical procedures, and search and rescue tactics to provide the highest level of capabilities when performing the mission.

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
– Marc Riboud

Running and gunning is easier with a handgun.

      @Paul Hacker Literally every reason you just gave also applies to bullpups and other types of shotguns too. So again... I'm not sure what your point is in the Shockwave other than just defending your like for it. Which I'm not trashing. Just pointing out how these benefits are also applicable in other shotguns.
